I finally got the hang of coasting in gear and I think that skill alone has added another MPG which in my case is about 4% improvement! I used to push in the cluch to coast max distance and get around 100 mpg or 75 with ac durring that time. Now I wait till I get 9999 fule shutoff mode durring engine breaking and coast almost as far. I just let off the gas or downshift, but I don't pick a gear so low it will send my rpm's up high because that seems to use more fule than clutch in coasting. I an getting the hang of it and getting within striking distance of my 30 mpg goal (36% over EPA).


Best 15-mile commute city/highway mix: 37.7 mpg
Best tank so far: 31 mpg
