Hey all.

I'm a proud (and sad) owner of Honda CRV 2001 LX auto transmission. Proud for the kind of car and sad for the it being a gas powered auto transmission. I'm interested in upping the mpg without putting increased wear on the transmission/engine to do it. I'm much more interested in running my car off a renewable fuel or some kind of crazy hybrid. Sadly I have little to no understanding of converting gasoline powered cars, a slightly better understanding of the grease car conversion. I love climbing and getting into the mountains in all seasons, but I try and ride the petal power road bike when I can.

Oh right now I'm only averaging high 23 mpg (35 fill ups). I don't accelerate aggressively, I coast into red lights and take the V out of cruise control on the hills. But i feel like I can do much better.
