Switch to Automatic Car
Good afternoon fellow Hypermilers.
I recently had to retire my Subaru, which put the Sewb in SewbDude. Unfortunately, I did not find a Subaru in my price and mileage range. Instead, I bought a 2007 Dodge Caliber mostly because I got if for a good deal. Anyways, my Subaru was a 2.2L 4 cylinder, 5spd. I averaged 31.8ish mpg. I heavily used neutral coasting, minimizing Throttle Position Sensor position (usually at 12 or 13), never used cruise control, and held speed at 63 to 66 mph. Now that I have a Caliber, I'm getting use to an automatic again. My TPS position is much higher in the Caliber to remain 63 to 66 mph. Any suggestions on how to hypermile with the automatic? It coasting in neutral too dangerous now?
