Urban Dictionary on "Hypermiler"

I opened up StumbleUpon while waiting for something to load for school. I put in "Hypermiling" and after a cool review of the hybrid fusion, it sent me to Urban Dictionary: Hypermiler where it gave the definition as:

A Hypermiler is someone who drives 37.2 MPH on a interstate so they can save $0.75 cents on gas over the course of a week. They have no regard for anyone else or their time.

Hypermilers present a clear danger to to traffic by creating an unanticipated obstruction by simply driving well below the posted speed limit and expected speeds for a given road.
That hypermiler just caused an accident with a bus full of nuns to save fifteen cents on his daily commute!

The second definition referred to exceeding EPA standards with basic driving techniques. I rated it up and the other one down and hoped that a few of my fellow forum followers would show our support.

Please enjoy your weekend!
