traction control = eat more gas

Finally got my car, I filled it up twice with the same kind of gas. On the 1st tank of gas I left the trac control on, and had it off for the 2nd tank of gas.

I got 60 mile more with the traction control off. Since I'm still in my break in period, I took it very easy for both tank of gas. All the milage came from going back and forth from work, so both were all freeway milage.

Is it just me or do you guys feel that the traction contol is useless. With it on/off it feels the same to me. Could it be broken? For now, its just another extra button to press.

why worry, be happy!

Maybe you don't drive the car hard enough to invoke the traction control...
