Hypermiling made me a free man

Before I used to care a lot about official mileage figures. I even got a VTEC-E Civic instead of the DOHC VTEC one I really wanted on that basis.

Now I don't really care so much, as I know my driving technique will allow me to extract good numbers from pretty much anything. I get like 40 MPG from my S2000 on a run.

This means I am now free to choose the car I really want and love without being constrained by the mileage figures or feeling guilty about it! Hypermiling made me free and a happier person. Hurray for that!

Usually we're all concerned about mileage records and that sort of thing so I thought this is a refreshing way of looking at hypermiling. Sorry for the rant!
