    QFT. i saw a study showing that people can gain 5mpg just byno accelerating toward a red light, but slowing down as soon as they see theyellow/red light by letting off the gas pedal. it really works. same goes for stop signs, crosswalks, etc.

    I live off Oodles of Noodles, sandwiches, chips, and cereal.


    We buy disposable blue cups, but I kept my cup so I wouldn't have to keep usin' 'em up.






    There's a whole lot more....rough times out here.

    yeah, it works especially well when you have the pedestrian crossing countdown signals. then you even know exactly how much time you have left onyour green light. i've upped my mileage by at least 5 mpg

    Yeah, for everything. If I don't need to gas it up so much, then I won't. I let go of the gas if I know the light is about to turn red or if I can seeit's red. I don't even see why people race to the red light and try switching in front of you if you go "slow" to a RED light.
