Good idea -
One comment though - with all the bad press on Hypermileing - I would add a section outlining the techniques you are using and the ones we are completely against -
Somthing like...

"Despite the bad press about some radical techniques which are both illegal and plain dangerous (Tailgating and running stop signs / lights) there are several basic, common sence items which are nether dangerous nor illegal - and in some cases actual bring the driver back into the Legal world - expesially slowing down to the speedlimit"

Might help head off the Lemming reaction to say the Hypermilers are Dangerous becuase some one saw some report about tailgating and assume your numbers are based on Dangerous techniques.

I may do something like this as well ( i work with a bunch of engineers - they love data)

First Milestone passed - 30 MPG (city) 5/15/08
Best City Tank - 8/31/09- 34.3 MPG (EPA= 20)
Best Highway Tank - 5/20/09 - 36.5 MPG (EPA= 28)
In effort to drive less:
Miles NOT driven in 2009 = 648 (Work from home and Alt Transporatation)
