Quick story:
I was fueling up the CRX for the first time yesterday, and I had gone EXACTLY 400 miles, so it made it easy to calculate what mileage range I was in as the fuel was pumping. I was SO excited to FINALLY get a glimpse at what I could expect, and was smiling the whole time. The lady in front of me noticed. The fuel pump clicked off, and I was beaming! I was in the 50 MPG range!! The lady inquired as to my excitement. So I told her briefly what I was so excited about. And I was happy to tell her I got 52 MPG! She was impressed, but said my hopes for 100 MPG is probably impossible. Hahaha! We shall see!

If I saw someone getting that happy over their mileage at the fuel pump, I'd say "Hypermiler!".
