Q: Q: Average 10.5 mpg

asked by on

I'd tried all the best practices on improving my MPG in the city, now average 10.5. I noticed that turning off traction control produced much less engine drag, but the owner's manual advises against it as some component damage could occur. Is it true? Is the traction tried to the stability control? I want stability control, but much less traction.
My car has an automatic transmission.
