Try it in your Seville.

I wish I had a '93 Seville. That's a nice ride.
Thanks, It is a nice ride,,, We need to figure out how to make these kind of cars more economical. I'd hate to get rid of it. Literally got it from a friend who sold it for an estate, "original owner /little old lady who passed from Alzhiemers. It had 54K when we got it. It now has about 80K

ANY WAY I am going to try driving the Seville differently Myself and see what happens. I will shift and glide.

Wish me luck

1993 is shortly after Cadillac made them larger again. With a curb weight of nearly 4000 pounds it's heavy for city driving, but its drag coefficient of .33 is respectable. It should hypermile well, actually.
