I have a little problem for hypermiling and the problem is that I use my car in the city almost all the time, but I can do a bit less than 30 mpg as the usual number, but if there's a lot of traffic, i can go down to 26, sometimes even more. But if there's no traffic at all, I can squeeze 33.6 mpg, but that's almost like a dream, as it has been only 2-3 times in 3 years, because it's not fair to count only one day, these numbers are for a full time.

One thing I did was the gap sealing, I use some white electric tape (just to match colors) but as I haven't been able to test it, as there's not enough speed where the air has some influence. I will have to plan a trip to test it :P
