It's not the transmission settings it's the right foot

Regardless, you picked the wrong car if you care about gas mileage.

look guys it's not about being asian or being cheap. When you play you play it smart that's all. If I want to save gas I would've gotten a prius instead. But there is must be a setting that yields the best mileage right? that's all I'm asking. This is called understand your toy.
