me too, all the people I talk to seem surprised that "nut behind the wheel" makes such a huge impact on mileage.

What did it for my dad was a new car he got that had a MPG read out built into the dash, he found that feedback alone changed his driving by 15% or more. I found the same thing with my scangague, the feedback is key. I make it fun to try to get XX.X or better on this tank.

Just the simple things make a big impact, coasting to a turn (or stop) helps me by 3-5%. I live out in the county where there is little traffic to bother and the roads are spaced a mile apart (I can coast about 3/4 of that coming to a total stop or .5 mile for a turn).

keep up the good work on right foot modding!
