thank you for all the info. Although 70% highway, but it's often stop and go stop and go...
I havne't noticed anything abnormal about the rpm needle. After shifting into a gear, sometimes when I accelerate, it kind of not wanting to go, just spinning/slipping is how I would describe it. It isn't a clutch issue right? Since shifting has no problem, it acts up after the car is in gear.
The mpg needle does swing quicker and stay longer on the right side, may be it is just in my mind....
My other grinder is a BMW
