    I always do this Because it gives me a much better feel for the accelerator. I can achieve pretty good mileage with this technique.
    Does anyone else do this? Any other similar strategies? Suggestions? Just curious.

    My strategy is to drive naked. Less clothes weight equals better mpg!

    Drive with shoes on, still get high mileage numbers. I drive with my heel on the ground and then I press the pedal inwards with my toes essentially. Very light adjustments can be made.
