Well, yes and no...and not exactly... I don't have any mods, although I have a list of mods that I would love to get started on (but doesn't every Taco owner, lol). Basically, I do the speed limit at all times, whatever it is. I use the cruise control so that the speed remains steady and not continually changing with my foot. Do not brake aggressively, always think and look ahead and don't brake at the last minute...believe it or not, this is important. Don't drive aggressively...(unless you're out in the mud or doing some off-roading).
I do regularly manage speeds of 70 mph or above, so that would be a "no" on the comatose grandma comment. That would also put my Taco at above 1k rpm's
I just drive responsibly during the work week instead of ....not paying attention, talking on my cell phone while eating another super-size meal and screaming at the kids in the back seat, running red lights and all that kind of stuff
