Bob, not everyone can ditch their car and go buy a prius, but everyone can learn effective techniques for saving fuel, of which p&g is easily the most effective.

But you do have to do it with some savvy, and when appropriate, and get good at reading traffic and other obstacles. It takes skill. You should ride along with someone who knows what they are doing and see the stellar results, and note that everyone still got where they wanted to in about the same amount of time, only the efficient ones did it smartly, without being sheep about it.

Seriously, you need to experience p&g first hand before putting it down with grossly inaccurate portrays and invalid assumptions. There are plenty of actual bad drivers on the road to complain about, you are targeting skilled drivers who have to pay the most attention while driving.
