Additional Benefits to Obeying the Law
Several months ago I began a concentrated effort to drive the speed limit. When I filled up the tank in my Honda Accord today, I noticed that I had gotten 370 miles out of the last fill-up. Despite the fact that I was almost pushing my car to work because the tank was so empty, I have actually seen a boost in fuel economy from obeying the speed limit. Since slowing down, I have seen my average go from 22 miles per gallon to 24-25 mpg.
These guys, however, have taken the gas mileage-saving game to a whole new level. 133 mpg! Wow. I'm not that interested in turning off my engine while driving, but the results are pretty impressive...
