Nempimaniacs Can't Get Enough? Mileage
SAN FRANCISCO -- My younger sister hates it when my parents drive her car. They move the seat, the mirrors, and change the radio station, but that's not what irks her. It's the gas mileage. Our family's Honda Civic Hybrid tracks your miles per gallon and averages it as you drive. When you apply the brakes or just step off the gas, and the engine stops working, the meter (needle) flies all the way to the right ? maximum fuel economy. Your average goes up.
