Making progress is more than just 'firm acceleration'...I'd be surprised if you follow the 'Masternaut' guidelines you have any difference to your journey times.

That's what I'd do, then gloat, for ages.

A multi-drop vehicle not using harsh acceleration/braking etc; what exactly are you multi-dropping to break away from the norm so ;)

I worked for Mercedes commercial vehicles for a while and found the customer vehicles that had them fitted were a PITA - I had to do various road tests etc.. any vehicle that had them fitted made me feel like getting a hammer out! I also hate some driver aids in vehicles for FORS driving commercial vehicles in central London, such as the beepers announcing you are turning left - the first one I heard nearly made me jump out of my skin - perfect in a truck.
