Does it have GPS, and/or over-the-air updates?

Altimeter? Inclinometer?

'makes no sense'

You have no testing methodology.
There's no way to learn anything the way you drive.

Different strokes. The Black Bumper Amish?

Weaverland Mennonites - "Black Bumper" - Third Way
Weaverland Mennonites - "Black Bumper" Weaverland Mennonites are one of three groups in the Old Order groups which permit automobiles (the others are the Wisler Mennonite Conference and the Markham-Waterloo Mennonite Conference (Canada)). Allowing cars and modern farm equipment since 1927 has brought about a major division among the Old Orders.

Anyone know how much of a difference rolling resistance makes at highway speeds? Obviously low rolling resistance tires help a ton in city driving. I have my blizzak winter tires on right now. Bad city mpg but I wonder what their impact is when I’m going 80 mph…

1) According to Caterpillar Corp.:
* from 55-mph, to 80-mph, the rolling resistance coefficient will increase 7.4%.
2) According to Bridgestone/ Firestone:
* LRR tires suffer the highest increase in rolling resistance with increased speed, compared to non-LLR tires.
* Between 55-mph, and 75-mph, you lose 27% of a LLR's mpg benefit.

So even at 90 mph I should still notice a slight difference between tires? Right now Im barely seeing much of a diff during my trip on the highway

All those driving those speeds were executed as sociopaths, so we don't have any data at that speed.
