i guess it's too hard (hilly) for you to tell at what steady speed your car is yielding its EPA highway number, eh?
No, I have never gotten 38MPG before in the Del Sol. From my experience with the Prius and many other cars, it seems that 65-70 MPH is where they all were at the EPA highway number, without AC of course.
I just filled up tonight. Good numbers! I traveled 415.2445 miles(lousy correction factor!:evil:. I took 9.17 gallons. This figures out to 45.28 mpg. Way cool. 8) This was my first tank of adding FFT Fuel Catalyst. Thanks FrankinMaine! Looks like it's time to start an experiment thread.
Horsepower is how hard you hit the wall, torque is how much of the wall you take with you.
the TDS rally sounds like fun. i'd love to try an insight.
and nice job on the morning commute! what did you do differently?
No change in technique, just no one on my bumper and I hit all of the lights. When no one is on my bumper my ign off coasts are much longer and I can coast over peaks that I would normally have to bump start over. I had the same FE at the low elevation point yesterday (95.8) but ended up blowing it because I tried to draft a truck at 65-70 on the 6 mile uphill highway segment. I also had dreadful luck with the lights after the drafting mistake which ended up with a 71.X trip.
