Yeah, getting MPG has become a more ingrained hobby for me. It's been 9 years since I started the hobby, and although I haven't had the bug to pursue many mods or take up more drastic hypermiling techniques, I am still irked when someone else is in the captain's chair of my Echo or it rains, or a school bus stops off in front of me, etc. If I had the hot rod I plan to start next year, I may not care about that, but otherwise, I have some sort of strange internal drive to strain for good numbers on that MPG record. 40+ is pretty good for me, more is impressive (I do miss the salad days of the mid-40s I was getting) but I am satisfied. Under 7 cents/g at current prices means I'd make decent profits were I sent anywhere and paid for mileage.
