You see a forecast for 6-10" of snow and tell a coworker that your after work project is swapping over to your snow tires. He replies "they are not on now?". Nope to much mpg loss (30%). He laughs and goes that made my day.
I had to drive for work on Wednesday, about 70 miles total. Time was critical, and I was in a company car. It was really fun to move forward through traffic for real. Bur it hurt not to be able to hypermile.
Then this morning during the Storm Of The Century Of The Week, I had my usual private lane on many parts of the highway to pass Jeeps with and still beat EPA highway despite all the backups.
