    As someone who uses a GPS in the car ... the "shortest" route may end up cost much MORE in fuel ... why? Cause it may take you down side streets with lots of stop signs and stop/go points ... significantly increasing fuel use. You need a combo of short route, with less stops and higher traffic speeds to get the best out of it. Someone who wrote that press stuff has no idea
