    So anyone else playing the ScanGauge….save gas game?

    I started out driving into work this morning (1 hour drive) each way ...was bored so... about half way I was getting 13.5 LHK so figured I would drive “super” conservative and see how much I can drop it….before this I was not even driving aggressive just normal. So for the next half of the drive I got it down to 10.7 LHK by driving like a granny…..that’s a 27% drop in fuel consumption! Holy crap!

    For you US dude that don’t know LHK…..I went from 17.42 MPG to 21.98
