34mpg on a 4000lbs suv (22mpg epa rated) [VIDEO]

hi guys i recently started hypermiling with my suv and sedan. i have no mods just stock vehicles. i have been revising my driving habits, specially with the suv. my suv is a crossover acura rdx with a turbocharger that goes to about 14.5psi at full boost. i could not find a BSFC map for this car (i would appreciate some help in this area). but i used ~70% load and 2500rpm with 1/3 boost for load. anyway i managed to get unbelievable 34mpg for about 50% city driving with this so called pulse and glide tactic. i have been reading about this tactic on the internet. i was very impressed. here is my video
