clencher(2726 x 1.09 = 2971 rpm @ 55 mph, ZX2. CO, do you have a tach? Does that sound right?)

Wow. You just did it again. You come up with figures faster than I can read them.

No, that is not close to the RPM I turn at 55. I can't tell you right now (I will tomorrow, no, today) but I'm considerably lower than that. Your RPM number looks closer for my number.

What does it all mean? Power and efficiency are one thing. For drag racing I would probably be doubling gear ratio and RPM. Fuel economy is another. In my experience, for FE I would be lowering my RPM, not raising it.

I used to sleep when there was nothing else to do. But I'm getting over that.

Compaq, have I heard that a word from you before? Thanks.

Glad you're not sore at me for the sermon.

Yes , cats can swim , but they usually dont because they look goofy when wet.
Yes , I can swim , I have scuba certification although that doesnt help here (not a very popular hobby)

Cats here are house cats , and I dont like the idea of that too much.
Some of my friends here have cats and they look dead and soul less ,,not like my Ozzie cat , always out having fun and killin some thing to eat.

Don't want the economy mode? Simply turn it off. It would make hypermiling much more accessible and much easier, even if it may not be as outright effective as doing it all manually.
Seems I have read statements similar to yours somewhere recently. Maybe in news reports about the guys that got 109 MPG-1400 mi tank with a Prius.

I agree that this would be a monumental tool for the auto industry. My fear would be they would find a million ways to screw it up.

With your vast outlook (or lookout) of the FE game, what would you like to see me try next. With my car that the experts would not give a chance.

The a was for amazing. I thought you used the word amazing in one of your messages to me.

Preachers usually preach sermons in church.

I felt I might have got a little carried away with my advice giving.

I was showing my wife your post on gas mileage freaks. She got a good laugh out of some because she knew they applied to me.

Have you seen this? My 103 MPG run on 11/16/06?? http://www.gassavers.org/showthread....2737#post32737
