Yeah, with my 93 CX/VX trans and aeromods and liht weight, kn a freeway I do lihter Pulse and Glide, less of it. It makes less difference, even though I do not have lean burn.

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
