Be right back boyz---I'll be taking my 1LT for a little spin and try the sport mode paddle shifting in the 3-4k rpm range and see what happens.
Perhaps this car just likes more agressive driving. That's cool, but I don't want 20mpg avg, EITHER---for that I'll rather have a v8, lol.
Don't even worry about the paddles. Just let her ride in 'M' and shift auto. Just don't act like the go pedal is an egg shell. I'm averaging 25MPG and I'm not by any means the slow car on the road.
