I may sound like a total idiot here...but what does it mean to hypermiling? I never heard such a phrase or word. Can anyone explain how i can do this? Is hypermiling good for your car?
Hopefully she was sober. I'll take 10 MPG over dead any day.I got pretty drunk last night and the wife was driving me home after the wedding. She was in fourth gear doing 35MPH revving at whatever it revs at (2000) or so ... I bit my tongue but I just wanted to scream "IT HAS TWO MORE GEARS YOU KNOW". She was doing it for like 5 minutes... !!! Oh well.. I'll never get 50MPG with that going on.
Hyper miling, when done correctly, is both safe for your car and not dangerous to you or those around you. Basically it's learning to drive to improve your fuel economy. In fact, mild hypermiling techniques are taught in drivers' education courses. They call it defensive driving.

Of course, that's why she was driving.Hopefully she was sober. I'll take 10 MPG over dead any day.
Check this link to post #100:I have a 2012 Eco with 11000 miles and I have never seen never MPG like that. Makes me wonder if there is something wrong with my car. When I say anything to the dealer about my "lack luster" MPG, they for one say not check engine no problem and it will take x amount of miles. Where X is something so far in the future to make me forget about any possibility of a problem.
The ECO MT just begs to be hypermiled.I was doing about 65mpg today doing around 40mph on flat road no problem. This cruze absolutely rocks.
