Interesting list of experience, but all from a single person, a person that is interested in getting maximum fuel mileage.

This means that you probably accelerate with purposeful intent of higher mpg (slow and steady retiree on a Sunday) verses a more typical American that is trying to get there yesterday and their hair is on fire.

Meaning weight penalties for quick acceleration will be far more costly based on driving style.
