Hello from Austin TX

I joined because I am interested in reducing even further, my fuel costs. This is mainly due to the amount of time spent in traffic in and around Austin while commuting.

I have an Abarth (5 speed) and would like to get the most out of it alas any pronounced aesthetic alterations.

So it will be interesting to learn some tips and tricks to save some cash!

nice ride.
Personally, I don't try to get good mpg in traffic. I just try to flow with the flow. I save my efforts for when the road is clear.
