I read posts like this all the time, all of which are a study in futility.

There's nothing one can do to increase city MPG, if you want better hiway MPG, slow down.

The MPG difference between 55 MPH & 75 MPH is a whopping 40%.

It amazes me that people buy full sized pickups, then complain about the MPG.
