I know what you mean! This Grey Fox got to enjoy watching this Red Fox2.0 here.
I’m light on the foot feed, mostly. Gotta hit the turbo and light up the tires from a stop sign now and then though, just for fun.
My long-term average is 22.3mpg. Nearly 3000 miles.
I routinely hit 30mpg+ going 45-50 on relatively flat county roads, which is where I do most of my driving in rural Texas.
I get 25-26 cruising at 60. I seldom go faster. I’m generally in no hurry to get to the next place, and I diligently try to appreciate where I am. I see a lot more of the adjacent terrain and wildlife at 60 than 70.
Saw a coyote this morning that I would likely have missed if I was going faster.
I understand that others need to go faster, but I don’t.
