After a decent amount of service completed on the Abarth, I regained a few features. One of those is my shift light works when I’m not in sport mode. It comes on incredibly early in my opinion, we’re talking shifting at 2k rpms. I figured I would give it a shot however and shift when the light comes on.

Accelerating is a lethargic process and the exhaust noises don’t bother the neighbors like before. I am FINALLY achieving the advertised 28 city mpg. I thought this was impossible to be honest.

Anyone else tried this? I don’t predict I can stick with it for long
