Riding with non-FE drivers
 
All I can say...well...it's almost scary now. :D

Racing up to stop lights. High revs/maintaining speeds in low gears. Fast acceleration.

I feel your pain. I had no idea I'd even end up driving like a "grandma."

I think the same thing when SUVs and 4x4s speed past me. I enjoy knowing that I pay my gas bill and they pay theirs. Bwahaha. :cool:

What I really can't figure out is people who pass me just so they can rush to the red light 400 ft ahead...:confused: But, like you said, it's their gas bill, not mine. Unfortunately we share the air they're polluting at worse rates.

It's sad when even your significant other says you drive like a grandma. I had to follow my family down somewhere this past weekend, and they were doing like 80 and kept calling me saying "are you back there? hurry up and catch up!"

I see this everyday. I'm especially familiar with the traffic jam "herk-n-jerk". People speed up to keep up with traffic only to slam on their brakes two seconds later. Not only does this waste gas, but it's down-right dangerous. Basicaly a rear-ending waiting to happen.

Maybe people will learn eventually, after they're wrecked a number of cars....

This is a funny topic, because the other night I was in the car with jared...I've never seen redline so many times in one trip.
