I know that mine is not quite slowest Metro, but I very seldom floor it to keep up with traffic. Maybe my idea of a decent pace was re-set by renting a moving truck. Have you had any horsepower withdrawals?

maybe a little but I generally drive the speed limit and I treat the gas pedal better than used to. I'm now in this game to save money on fuel and to get high mpg numbers.
