for the last two years or so, most of my driving is city. last year, i scored a computer, making my car more fun to drive and enticing to lay into the throttle a bit more. my mileage has typically been about 25mpg. all highway puts me around 33mpg.

i wanted to see how high i can get mileage in my 02 neon, especially with how high gas prices have become.

  • shift below 2500rpm.
  • decelerate in gear downhill and to red lights. neons cut fuel on deceleration. no fuel is better than a little fuel for idle

i haven’t changed my freeway driving habits.

result: 30mpg. yay!
