Sorry, have no idea what tires I have. Whatever the dealership put on when I bought the car, but I do have the pressure up to about 45 and that has helped a lot. Can you tell me what LRR tires are?

Actually, no, I was on a 65 mph
road. Which makes it difficult to drive slower than the rest of the traffic. Luckily the road wasn't too busy.
Traffic speed is a big problem for me on my daily commutes (besides the Missouri rolling hills and love of stop signs)- Missourians love to speed and when drive-time traffic is all going at 60+ (up and down those rollings hills) and then slamming on the brakes when they get too close, it is real hard to maintain a hybrid driving pattern.
I'll have a look at the database. I don't do a lot of road trips and my daily mpg is nothing to be proud of (low 50s in the winter, low 60s in the summer as long as I can keep the a/c off). However I am moving soon and my commute will be increasing so my daily mpg may go up.
