Hey, it'* only ga$ money!
If the gas gauge goes to empty quicker when I drive it always in OD, it'* possible.
If the gas gauge doesn't
go to empty sooner when I drive it in D, it'* possible.
ANYTHING is possible. It'* a car.
That goes from experience with my GMC Jimmy, as well as my buddy'* wife'* '97 SSE.
I've got to check out my '92 to confirm it in this car, though.
OD seems to be boggy and doggy, lugging the motor so I've got to feed it more pedal, thus, more fuel, thus burning more gas sooner.
The majority of my driving is in town, to and from work, about 7 miles each way.
I may take a round trip of 120 miles, once a month or so, on the freeway.
I'll have to try out both modes to see how this '92 decides to burn the gas.
