I simply excellerate faster than most, often spinning my tires
which in turn requires more brake pressure to stop faster.
Heavy rotating mass on my 4x4 with 20's and Terra Grappler's that weigh in at almost 100 lbs+ per corner
100% city Stop and Go traffic, smash the gas on green, smash the brakes on the next red. repeat.
It's even worse on weekends at the track where I really bring the abuse to a new level
I dont think my EVIC reads double digits for fuel economy very often
Sure it costs a lot more compared to driving like a granny,
but its more fun....gotta Pay-To-Play.
If I drove it any different and wanted to save money
I may as well have a V-6 ( or a Prius)
