Default gas pedal

Is anyone else bothered by the light resistance of the PT's gas pedal? This is starting to bug me on long highway drives. Unlike resting the foot on a floor-pivoting pedal, the PT's swing pedal keeps the foot and leg muscles tensioned. Any ideas for a fix?

Oh, and 3, lean knee against console, foot barely touching pedal, and no strain, but this from the guy that uses cruise on city streets. Well, I do that because PT no likey 35 and my street is well monitored.

Zoned,

Sorry , can't really help with the soft pedal besides the spring mentioned earlier.

I gotta ask though, What have you driven with a floor-pivoting pedal?

Old VW Beetles have them, as do most cars from the 50's and prior, but I can't think of any modern vehicle with that feature.

It's a good bet I'm a lot older than you.
