comment Fuel efficiency and altitude
This is definitely some food for thought. But wouldnt it somewhat balance out then? Air in Colorado is less dense (due to altitude), air in Florida is more dense, but your humidity idea negates that. And if youre claiming my performance drop is purely over density, then less dense air weighs less (per ft^3), and so Florida should have lower air pressure, but it doesnt. I would also expect my MPG to change based on whether its humid or not out (which I've never had happen). Not saying your idea is bad or wrong, I just would like to make sense of these points :-)

@Rig you mean do I notice it? Its hard to tell. Perhaps, but it could simply just be my imagination.

No go on this theory too. The summer in colorado is about the same temperature as it is in florida right now (though still a little cooler in florida right now). And I got barely any noticeable difference in efficiency between summer and winter in colorado (small enough to be within margin of error, <1mpg).

@Rig More fuel and more air means more power, thus I shouldnt have to use as much gas to obtain the same speed.
