Also... I'm not talking about coasting.
Or turning off the ignition at a red light - or anything unusual for the average driver.

I'm just talking about the best speed to aim for to get the best mileage.

Nothing past 60 mph. I know when I was riding my Harley, if I went past 60, the wind resistance of my helmut caused my neck to go back....very uncomfortable but is indicative of the wind drag.

Keep the thing clean also cuts down on drag too.

You could always park in the yard and build a deck around it and have a small swimming pool and you could have your outdoor adventures and save on gas at the same time. :)
