Hey everyone, my name's Will.

I've actually been on the forums awhile but with no car. now i have my gandma's saturn sl2, and I've been trying some tricks to improve mpg. These include coasting down hills, acclerating under 2200 rpm when no traafic is around behind me, not using the ac at low speeds and using the windows down and vice versa above 40 mph. I've also been driving 5 mph under the speed limit for aerodynamic reasons to also improve mpg. The car is just powered by a 2.0 liter 4 cylinder and the thing has a pretty rounded shape, but whatever you can do to help right.

Anyways, talk to you later -Will

Welcome to EM! S-Series are nice little MPG machines. What year is the Saturn? Is it an automatic or a manual?
