Maybe we should add "Set your alarm clock to 5 minutes earlier, then set a second alarm clock to 10 minutes earlier" to the Hypermiling Tips?

I'm only half joking - getting up 5 minutes earlier puts less pressure on you, so you can take your time ecodriving (though hypermiling doesn't really get you there that much later). But then, s**t happens, plus we're only human (or most of us, anyway), so sometimes leaving earlier isn't an option.

What matters is where you're going, not how fast.
