:word: same here. If I drive like a teen, my gas mileage SUCKS. But, if I accelerate at a comatose speed and keep it under 2k or 70 mph whichever comes first, i do pretty damn good.00Silverado said::word:
Driving like a typical teenager will have a heavy effect on your gas mileage. I know mine sucks, but its because my heavy right foot :read:
I've heard that using your a/c around town hurts your mileage, on the freeway helps it because of the increased drag. I havn't proved that either way yet. I never use it anyway :crazy: (when I got 16 mpg though I had it on...on the freeway...part of the way...)Matt said:its goes the same for braking, braking gradually or coasting when near an intersection help as well. i think not using your a/c also helps but not using your a/c for at least a few minutes each day isn't the greatest thing to do.
