Description: Very pleased with what this car will do with just a small amount of sensible driving. Sit in 1-2 hours of stop & go traffic per week, but still able to keep MPG's respectable as long as RPM's are kept low. HOV usage allows more aggressive wave smoothing which is a big help. Already seeing an improvement using the Scangauge.

Also trying to change behavior on hills. Used to try maintaining speed on hills, but am now letting the car lose some speed going up & get back to speed going down.
