gears as soon as you can but don't make it labor,
Modern engines cut the fuel completely on the over
run so don't knock it out of gear, once you get into it
you will be surprised how much better your MPG will
be and you can make surprising progress not holding
others up.
If interested visit the Fuely web site you can track
yours and others MPG click on my little fuely pic.
youve just described my driving style pretty well.
