Hmm. some tips are not valid for "hardcore-hypermilers"
* It says accelerate slowly, here consensus says accellerate briskly.
* Also pulse-and-glide (even engine-on pulse-and-coast-in-neutral) is more economical than steady speed cruise. But this tip is not for average Joe - it involves too much work. I enjoy it and I dont get bored and sleepy.
