thanks for the tips. this was encouraging. i have a few questions though.

"around town: 62mpg "

in a cvt? how many stopslights/stop signs/ turns are we talking? was it a downhill "around town" cruize? you sure you weren't getting a little help from the wind? :) this to me seems _slightly_ exaggerated... or just darn lucky. I'd be curious to know if this is a trend that has continued for you or if it was a one time score for you. I'd love to hear a follow-up.

In addition.. I'm left to wonder... what downhill-windless city that doesn't have traffic lights was the EPA driving in when they got 57 mpg?!?!? I love my insight, dont get me wrong but i feel i've been mislead by these figures. especially considering the fact that the 57 the epa reports for in city driving was scored (supposedly) with honda's recomended tire inflation. 10 psi less than im at now. temperatures in milwaukee (where i live) have been between 30-60 degrees in the past month.. am i in for a major turn around once temperatures stablize around 70-80? I'm averaging just around 52 mpg around the city right now and the temps have been hanging in the mid 40s.
