I am an engineer and I like data so I decided to run the numbers on mine, I too started recording my results and hypermiling on 6/6/08

between then and my last fillup I have driven 5076.7 miles

Now, I have averaged 40.5mpg since then, which works out to 125.35gallons of gas used.

I averaged the prices I had monitored in my fuel log (it should be higher because i started halfway through but oh well) and it came out to be $4.14

I figured 125.35 gallons at $4.14/gallon comes out to $519.36 in about a month and a half.

Previously I was getting around 32mpg average (that might be optimistic, probably closer to 30).

5076.6/32mpg = 158.65 gallons used

at $4.14 this works out to be $656.8

end result 1 and 1/2 month of hypermiling has saved me $137.44 which has nearly covered the cost of my SG2, at the current rate my SG2 will be paid for in roughly 2 weeks.

Techniques have been mainly slowing down, not using the AC if i'm driving alone, putting the windows down only when i'm driving sub 35mph.
