I personally think it's not so much the hypermiling as you not driving your car frequently. If I remember right, you can go a full month without using your car. Time is rust's best friend, it lets it work its ways.

Is there something you could spray on that prevents rust, but does not interfere with brake pads? That sounds like a tall order.

BTW, What do the rear drum brakes look like?
