I am not getting that kind of mileage, but very good mileage driving normally. Do you have the I4 or V6?

thanks, I will! :thmsup:

I know the hypermiling technique has been around for more than a decade, but cliffs on how to do it?
pretty much anticipating what will happen as you go down the road.

if you see a red light coming up from afar, just keep your foot off the pedals and glide. I happened to get lucky today and time the lights perfectly, which help immensely. i engine brake quite often since my cvt comes with paddles.

however when you do stop, i found that getting up to speed quickly is more beneficial than crawling off the line.

2 ways to maintain your speed - pulse&glide and constant pressure. I prefer the latter bc i can get a consistent pressure on the throttle and adjust by keeping my eyes on the instant mpg gauge.

eco mode was enabled, and a/c was off of course.

those were the only things i really use while hypermiling. many more methods, but some seem risky and disrupt traffic flow imo.

I agree and I drive the same way. Unfortunatey, I sometimes have slow to stop and go traffic on part of my commute. I wouldn't call what you are ding hyper milling I call it sensible driving.

I love the 18" wheels, the V6 silent power and up to 31 mpg. Most of all the design (2 doors) haven't experienced the sedan. It seems to except the modern customizing as well as some old school. Looks really good lowered.
