Yeah... it's so internalized now it irritates me when people decry, incredulously, "NO WAY ARE YOU GETTING 20 KM/L (47 mpg) FROM THAT!"

Then I have to go off on a micro-lecture of how anticipation, patience and a light right foot can do wonders for your economy... without you ever having to master the black art of hypermiling. Most of them think going just 10 mph slower is way too boring. Me, I see it as SOP.

Then again, I have the advantage of being able to "get my rocks off" on the track a few times a year. Long enough for all the joint pain, bruised ribs and dehydration to remind me why I don't drive there more often.
