Thanks for all the info again! You guys are awesome! On my way home from work I put 44psi in my tires (Max Sidewall), and tried coasting while in neutral...with the engine on...for the 1st time. It went pretty smoothly, I want to practice with it a bit more in the city before trying anything too daring on the freeway.

Thanks for the Vacuum Guage guide...I'll check it out in the morning.

Ok...so for my first tank with this vehicle I got....drum roll please...42MPG!! I went 429.6 miles on 10.235 gallons. I'm so freakin' excited! That's 10MPG more than I originally thought I was going to be getting when purchasing the car!

Congratulations!

The revised EPA estimates for your car are 25 City, 35 Highway, and 29 Combined. You should use those in your EM Garage.
