When the only time you break the speed limit is when your foot is completely off the gas.

When the only time you have it floorboarded is climbing a hill (trying to keep it in top gear).

When you'll squeal the tires around curves trying to save momentum, but take 10 times longer starting off from a stop going downhill trying to get up to 3rd gear speed before starting the engine.

When, right after filling up & logging your mileage, with high hopes for the next tank, you sit at the gas pump, engine off, watching traffic, so you can take off and pull out into the street without stopping & screwing up your fresh tank's mileage.

When the same people who call you "weird" for hypermiling complain about the cost of gas, but still hot rod around everywhere & let their engine idle a lot.
