    To the question "how fast do you drive ?" you reply "At 14-30% (on GPS gauge)".

    I use the GPS (Gas pedal Position Sensor) Xgauge on my SGII in my Prius to have a more precise and fast XGauge than the standard TPS (Throttle Position Sensor) gauge.

    Have fun,

    Denis.

    You contemplate leaving your wallet at home because the fuel savings are starting to have a negative effect on the weight savings :D

    Not only do you care about a 32' elevation change over 11 miles, you can estimate it before looking at the actual data.

    ... it seems obvious to you that speed limit signs should be placed at the top of a slope.

    Everything seems to be working a an eternal shift in attempts to reduce your gas mileage.

    ... especially the people who choose where to place speed limit signs. Seriously, can't they wait just a few hundred feet?

    And stop signs and traffic lights.

    And there should be warning signs before speed limit signs if they're not visible early enough (like when a village begins in a forest, after a bend)!

    ...you are a little bummed when you "only" get 128.5 mpg for the day because it wasn't as good as the 130.3 mpg for the day before.:p

    ...you have been out-accelerated by a school bus, an 18-wheeler, and a dump truck.

    ...people realize that you are going to go slow and pre-emptively move into the next lane.

    during a round of golf you're more concerned about your MPG on the way home because the wind slowly switched 180 degrees to a headwind than your chance to break 40 on the back 9.



    (shot 40 :( :D )
