Default Re: 2002 SL2 fuel economy

Just filled up, this tank was 21 mpg, 90% NYC stop and go driving with AC. Better than the last tank of 17.8 mpg which I think was incorrect due to not resetting trip odo immediately after fill-up.

I am going to replace the front brake pads and spring clip, lube the slides to make sure they don't bind. With the transmission not slipping anymore and non binding brake pads, I think the next tank should be even better.

There are no sides, they are pins and 1 pin runs in a rubber boot.

By slides, I mean anypart of the brake caliper that allow the pads to "float", which include the pins, and the key ways on the pads which ride on the clips.
