My daily commute is 10 miles of country backroads 12 miles of 2 lane highway and 2 miles on the interstate to school. I can pretty much stay moving for 98% of the drive depending on traffic near the interstate.

For work, my boss lives 5 miles away so I drive super slow on the way there and we carpool to the job.

There are some rolling hills and twisty curves but I found clutch in coasting downhill and A/C off uphill appear to cancel out some of the losses from climbing.

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.
