I have found that if you drive the posted speed limit my fuel milage went from 10 mpg to 12 mpg, I got to the same place as other drivers about one to two minutes later,I was not as stressed,I dont have to slow down when I see a patrol car,I get to see the other idiots eating and reading and doing all sorts of idiotic things at 70 or 80 mph,It is sad to see that there are a lot of peaple on the road that dont care about the cost of fuel or the amount of fuel we are using up,not to mention that a lot of people on the road have kids in the back seat and dont seem to care what might happen to them,I think they should make it a law if you get a ticket for over 10 mph over the speed limit with kids under 16 in the car you should be charged with child endangerment also.
