No music.... Listen to audiobooks. Paying attention to Harry Potter keeps me from thinking about how I could get somewhere faster or slower. If anything I want to go a little slower so I can hear more

I listen to audiobooks as well, but sometimes I just want to hear good old rock

on longer drives I like audio books. for daily commute it's praise music in the morning to wake me up/ get my focus right for the day. then classical or old Christan music to keep me calm.

I found in a previous thread I suggested radio drama which works to fill in the time if you are driving slow - talk radio works like this too. For music I like all sorts from electronica to classic. I don't get better FE with one vs another - Faithless Insomnia is just as likely to make me go faster as Elgar's Nimrod.



EDIT - Headphones only, and if by the end you don't want to know more classics you are dead from the neck up.
