Hand Throttle?

I installed a hand throttle on my 89 4dr Geo and got 56.6 mpg @ 55 mph...however, it was a handfull (No pun intended)

I got 54 mpg maintaining 55 mph rigidly, without the hand throttle.

I eventually removed the hand throttle.

Point? conservative driving equals high mileage...55 mph does VERY well in Geos.

Hand throttles and hills make for complicated driving. Forget I mentioned them.
