if you make driving slow a game....

Then it becomes sort of fun. Always trying to drive with the goal of saving fuel then becomes not as big of a chore as one would imagine.

Let's face it, the Golf GTI is not a fuel sipper, but considering I have close to 200 hp under the hood, with 230 lb/foot of torque, and the car is essentially 9 years old, I'm still getting decent mileage.

In fact, I just beat the estimates posted by the US Gov, here. It said that highway was 28 MPG, well bucko, I got 28.95 MPG. I win.

Now if only I could accelerate like a turtle and not get every other driver on the road upset.
