Newbie from ATL area

Hello. I'm a skinflint looking to save gas. I drive a 2009 Hyundai Sonata, 2.4l 4-cyl, 5MT with about 35,000 miles on the clock. I bought the car new and have averaged 26.5 mpg, mostly city miles, maybe 10% highway. Looking forward to learning anything I can.

I have cousin that used to live some 70 miles south of Atlanta.
I do envy your fuel prices, as in past travels have found them to be among the lowest
in the country.

Plus generally speaking, your mild temperatures help to keep that fuel gauge working slower!

We won't talk about the humidity though! (oops!)

Welcome; you will find tons of info here!
