NoCO2, I get that feeling sometimes, too. When I'm going up a long hill slowly, getting 20mpg, sometimes I'll think "If I went faster, I'd get this bad stretch over quicker and save gas". Then I have to remind myself that there is no time unit in the equations Miles / Gallons or Liters / Kilometers. But it sure grates on the nerves to watch bad numbers on the Scanguage for so long.
Roll on,
