Coming back to this thread since I still like the idea of it.

However, when it comes to the cards I'd say something like "Hypermiling = Safely achieving higher MPG than the EPA figures."

Tips:

1: Learn.
2: Maintain the vehicle.
3: Fill-up all the way (But no "topping off") and track miles-per-gallon.

It's three, but it makes more of a change to work on the bottom line than the top. Without learning, What is there? Without maintaining the vehicle, What is there? Without tracking fuel economy, What is there?
