If you're driving 45mph on the interstate you better be driving a scooter otherwise there is no excuse.
Depending on your car you may actually get better gas mileage at 55 than 45.
Have you always drove this slow even when fuel was cheap?
I know a guy that refuses to use cruise control and drives extremely slow. I rode with him one time and he was one of these drivers that is on/off the gas every 2 seconds. I nearly got sick and I probably get better gas mileage by driving 15mph faster and having a steady foot. He also thinks that using the A/C is a waste so he rolls his windows down no matter how hot it gets. Once again, I'm willing to bet that I get better gas mileage by having my A/C on.
Actually I just saw recently that that's a proven fact. Lower speeds with the windows down are fine but increased speeds with the windows still down and you throw fuel effeciency out the window. You actually do get better gas mileage using A/C at higher speeds.
As for the guy who drives 45 in the interstate...that's just pure stupidity and you deserve everything you get.
Never argue with an idiot. They will bring you down to their level and then beat you with experience.
I believe Detoit has been going to a 5 speed transmission. One of the hybrid drawbacks that will be fixed is to have the ability to plug directly into electricticy outlet where you park. The solitude of the engines sometimes fool people crossing the intersections. Whoosh..
