How do I install a governor in Bacon? :)

I just had my first full tank in Chorizo and my cell phone showed 38 MPG [even]. I was with my girlfriend when she filled up Bacon. While the pump pumped she told me how she drove exactly like I did, then took nine gallons to fill up after 200 miles--22 MPG.

Good job little girl...

She also says that she starts coasting way ahead like I do, so I asked why the front wheels were covered in brake dust when we washed the car just before I bought Chorizo.

Anyway...

I need to gain 6 MPG to double my girlfriend's mileage.

I wonder what she would get in a Prius... :P

Uh, do like the British did, and "appoint" someone/thing to be a governor (wink,wink)?

Fat Charlie! I can probably use that! What if I put a spacer on the throttle cable? That would do the same thing, right?

Some toe "restraint" (rather than toe "jam") = cheap redneck governor.
