Filled up on the edge of Lawrence, practiced my hypermiling techniques on the way into work (Leawood, 87th & State Line). Averaged 30.4 mpg in a 2004 Buick Park Avenue Ultra with a supercharged V-6 ! W00t!

What is this "hypermiling"?

I think its a fancy term for walking.

I think its a fancy term for walking.

Or being pushed half of the time on the way to work by a Super Duty. :hmmm:

Thank You. I wondered what it was as well.

Just checked how I am doing MPG wise myself.... I got 47.2 MPG on the Harley.

*love it*

I have been very conscious lately of how quickly I accelerate, and have definitely eased off the gas a bit. I have noticed a difference. Also my alignment was a bit off, and I got that fixed last week, which seems to have helped as well.

There are times, obviously, when you have to stand on it, but I used to do that pretty much all the time. Now I'm trying to give myself more time and take it easy driving when possible.

This does not occur naturally :grr: but I'm working on it.
