You know you're an ecomodder if you dream you're in an aerodynamic workshop with people you've never met, whose names are forum handles...

...I could dream I'm having fun with a group of cheerleaders in a VW bus...but no...

You know your an ecommoder if....

you use "I'm getting more mpg's this way" as an excuse for driving the goofy looking pile of #@%& around.

you've ever wondered why more people don't do this.

the car your ecommoding is your "nice car"

I haven't done that just yet, but I did reach a new point recently; while stopped at a light with a very slight down hill incline (Engine off obviously) I rocked myself forward and back in my seat to nudge it forward.

Did that on firday!! i was going to a concert and was sitting in stop and go traffic with some hills. kept the engine off for FE and because it'll overheat[still need to rewire e-fan] i was coasting along and started to slow down too much at the top of a hill, thought about getting out and pushing, but i ould then roll too fast down hill, so i just did the shake and kept going!
