Th EPA estimate said 21/26 but I have been pleasantly surprised that the MPG is more than the EPA stated it would be. Even though the 21/26 estimated MPGs seemed kind of low for a 5sp 4cyl truck that weighs under 3000 lbs.

I don't mind the lack of giddy up. If I feel the need for speed I just jump in my Mustang

My last 3 fill ups have all been 30mpg or better

I figured based on the window sticker that I would probably average 23-24mpg. So I am thrilled to be getting this good of mpg.

I am going to install a switch that allowsme to run the defrost without the A/C compressor kicking on. You can feel it suck the power out when the A/C is on.

What are you plan on doing for switch?

I know on most cars, the compressor will not run when the temps are below 32˚.

believe it comes on on every setting except the first setting to the left of "off". Not positive, though.
