LEW is on a distinguished road

I haven't notice a significant drop in mpg associated with the slow shifting. Mine will finally shift after 3 or 4 miles even in cold weather. If yours takes long enough to shift, it will lower your mpgs. My "late" shifting started before transmission service (fluid and filter etc) and is still doing it after.
