I wonder how often the CAT would be "lit" if you started from cold, running until it is lit, and then did your hypermiling for the remainder of the 10+ mile course you describe. Once it is lit, it would more easily be maintained at higher temps by the short pulses in a P&G routine.
See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
