Yep! My electric motorcycle has no radio, but it also doesn't have an engine idling at lights, so it's hard NOT to listen to other peoples radios!

You know you're an Ecomodder when you take an 8 hour trip at the speed limit in 25* F with the only heat being defrost while down hill

Guess with a full grill block and hot air intake, you'd rather keep the heat on to regulate engine temp to the optimum. Especially so in the summer season.

...when you are watching "looper" and you are wondering what the exhaust recirculation hose is on all the vehicles. And wonder if the cars have alternator deletes because of all the solar panels on the hoods.

When driving through a 500 foot section with 6" of snow blown across the road, and everyone else is worried about getting stuck, you're worrying about how that will hurt your fuel economy.
