One thing that has to be understood about this car is it's a hog upon acceleration. The 18 inch, 28(?)ish pound wheels only compound the problem, especially when it's mostly city acceleration, then stopping again at the other end of the block. Who knows about all the additional slowing/accelerating that happens during city driving. Well, you see the cycle. I can't tell your location while posting this from my phone, but we are working ourselves into the the season which helps even less for a several reasons.
