Yes, I am finding out that the relation between speed and MPG goes way down (quickly) depending on speed. Theoretically I should be getting ~94MPG at 35mph and only ~40MPG at 70mph. Just slowing down to to 55 - 60mph, I'd hit in the 50's probably easily....

I'm going to see if I can go different (slower) routes to work. I love it when someone is going slower than me, I always get behind them, however I found most people don't like to be "followed".

I also live in TX, so I understand where you're coming from. There are so many examples of fuel-ineffeciency out here that I could dedicate a book to it. And the highways are crazy.

Most people seem to simply not know how to drive properly.... They follow too close, speed, change lanes with no signal or with out even looking, etc, etc, etc...... I could go on and on, but you guys know what I'm talking about....
