Hey everybody!

Biologist, part-time teacher and ecologist on the side. Newb to hypermiling but found this site and really opened my eyes. Now my goal is to get my Scion to 40mpg. My current tank is better than what I've been doing (I think ~ looks like 37mpg) but I don't have instantaneous feedback via Scangauge so I rely on tank fillage for my consumption rate and I won't need to refill until next month.

(seriously... one refill a month? Why did it take me so long to figure this out?)

My 5 pillars of fuel efficiency:
  • driving style
  • aerodynamics
  • tires
  • weight reduction
  • engine maintenance
