AMERICAN ROAD WARRIOR!
My driving habits are a little on the strange side, they're basically a hybrid between HP and FE driving habits
I cruise in the highest gear that the car will tolerate, but I tend to get to my target speed in a hurry. I skip gears insteade of wasting the time and energy shifting through gears I don't need. I engine brake a lot. I use relatively high RPM a lot. If I'm on a 55mph road I'll usually near redline 1st and then 2nd most of the way out and then drop it in fifth and leave it there.
no mods other than the AC removal, in fact my headlights are usually up because i have a bad popup motor. Also I have a tendancy to speed on the interstate around here, 80mph isn't abnormal. At 80 I'm still getting flown by.
i figure 36% over epa isn't bad at all for how I drive it.
Soon i'll change the tranny and diff over to redline, that should help a little, synth gearoils have helped my previous cars.
