A fast idle at 70. love it.


Wow, that is amazing. No wonder it can achieve 30mpg on the freeway.


Actually, a lot of C7 owners are getting over 40 MPG highway under perfect conditions!!! My best in my C6 is 37.0 MPG, so I totally believe I could get well over 40 with a C7 since it has the extra gear (7 vs my 6) plus the ability to run on only 4 cylinders too.
