Hyper Miling

Just wanted to know if anyone has tried hyper miling with thier Camaro? I used to do it in my Saturn Sky and WOW could I really bring the mileage up! It doesn't seem to work in the Camaro....the automatic transmission takes a while in between neutral and drive to catch. I don't know if its the Stabilitrac that is holding it up. But I had that on my Sky too...so that shouldn't be the problem. Any help? Thanks

If your really worried about gas mileage you probably should have kept the Sky. Thank god you live in NM, because your Hyper Miling people are the ones who are creating road rage! DON'T BE AN ASS, JUST GET WITH THE FLOW OF TRAFFIC!

Hyper Miling

Actually Hyper Miling is a way to save on gas by putting the vehicle in neutral and coasting down hill. Its not hot rodding. Anyway...the Camaro doesn't seem to like to coast in neutral. Just seeing if anyone else has noticed this.

I get hyper by the mile driving the car like it's intended to be driven...Fast and Hard and scare the grannies and grandpas with a Hat… OUT THE WAY!

The Auto is intended to be in gear and Tranny is not matched to engine speed when in neutral and will hesitate...just like slowly engaging a clutch to match RPM on a downshift in a manual tranny...
