    When going down a steep hill just throw it into neutral and let it free wheel...at about 150 or so mph the air resistance will become so great that it stops accelerating, and the speed holds steady there.
    No brake wear, phenomenal fuel economy, and you are making good time to.















    For anyone who has any doubts about this being sarcasm or not...the answer is yes.

    I hear you can get 165 mph out of a Volvo due to aerodynamics.
