Very nice.

I often wish I had a 4 cyl. Maybe once or twice a year do I pull something heavy enough that I really "need" the 8 cyl. The rest of the time, about all it's good for is guzzling gas, getting me speeding tickets, and appeasing the bit of Tim Taylor syndrome that I have.

Mine's a gazz-guzz-lerr also. F150.

I discovered great improvements in gas mileage, esp. on highway tours, if I drive at slightly less then speed limit - basically reduced wind resistance - but also feathering the gas rather than stomping on it. You can also drop the gas pedal on down hills. All the traffic will pass you as you puttz along in the right hand lane. I was actually surprised to discover that many others were content to follow me, in a row at the reduced speed.

But the majority are in a big hurry to save a little time - and it isn't much difference.

This is also low-stress driving; as opposed to insane tail-gaiting, etc. Basically, I cruise with the semi-trucks. And just watch the circus in the left hand land. This has a big impact on mileage. It's also safer for avoiding dangerous situations. Let the nascar drivers do their thing. There's another group to run with.
