And BTW, you and Jurgis will both find your cars listed in the original post for this thread.
Thanks a lot from my side too. This honor applies to the coincidence of ceveral facts like that ...
- this is the first car I own that has an (external) on-board computer
- its brake booster works without running machine
- fuel in Europe is rather expensive, so saving energy saves money too
- I care for enviroment protection (less consumption means less CO2)
- most trips are at the country side with soft hills

I'm still able to learn and to improve my driving style.

Here is shown how to use the topological situation to save energy. As my car has manual gears I can simulate all kinds of automatic programs. Most roads I use are well known and I can try to find out the best style (remember which speed at which position is the best).
