    Most of the streets in our town are from 0 mph to 40 mph for a mile and back to a red light again.

    You are 100% correct.

That's why it fits for folks that are just starting out and also for those who have the means to own any car. You can't say that about a Yaris.
    It's all about the SPG's (Smiles Per Gallon).

    I agree completely. In addition to being smooth it's mostly about anticipation and conservation of momentum. I tend to corner pretty fast because I don't want to brake, and I also use neutral a lot coasting down hills. Don't add more fuel if you're just gonna need to brake anyway, don't bake all the way down the hill only to accelerate back up the other side.

    There are tanks where I say to hell with the average fuel economy, let's have some fun, but it turns out that being smooth is also fast so the mileage doesn't drop much.

    You had to mention the air filter didn't you? How perfect, because our 500 does needs a new air filter.

    2016 Abarth auto. I get 22 or 23 mpg in city driving; always in sport mode and zero effort to conserve. Just came back from a 1,500 mile road trip. Lots of highway miles cruising at 70. Average fuel consumption was 33 mpg.
