My wife agreed to set the cruise control at 55 mph (65 zone, 50 RT miles) on her last trip to the doctor and it looks like it paid off in a big way. My fuel economy rebounded nicely :-)

During the colder weather, I've noticed that the car has to warm up most of the way before it will shift into overdrive. That doesn't have a positive effect on fuel economy :-(

This is such an uphill struggle to get decent fuel economy from this car. My wife and I share it, based on who has a greater distance to travel. But anything less than 32 mpg is such a HUGE disappointment :-(

I do not believe that the K&N air filter has added any benefit to the fuel economy of this car. I had high hopes, but don't see any evidence of an improvement. On the other hand, my wife is driving this car a little more and I think she's trying a little harder to improve her mileage.

Wife drove out shopping again. (Our other vehicle is a Silverado pickup and it stays parked most of the time.) I should note that our mileage didn't suffer as much this time as her last outing. She might be coming around.
Last night I changed the oil to full synthetic 5W30. I'm looking forward to seeing if there's a mileage benefit.

Let my wife take it shopping out of town. She also decided to see if it was fast enough. FYI: At 85 miles per hour, the instant economy read 13 MPG (at wide open throttle). My daughter tattled on her ;-)
