Hello everyone,

I've lurked on this great forum a bit before, but just signed up now.
I've stumbled across the great art of hypermiling about a year ago while still driving a '98 Chrysler (Dodge) Intrepid which had a pretty low MPG. I only had that car for a couple years, during which I managed an all time average of 26 MPG (9.1 L/100km here in Canada). Been keeping track on

No mods, only SGII and keeping tires around 40-44 PSI.

About 3 months ago, for my 29th birthday, I bought a used 2013 Honda Fit LX with manual transmission at just under 40,000 km. So far my average has been just under 36 MPG (6.6 L/100km) but I would like to see it climb up to 40 MPG, especially after I get better at shifting gears and get into some warmer weather.

The Canadian cold weather and winter gas have a negative impact on fuel mileage. With the Intrepid it was anywhere between 10-20% more fuel in winter months...that's almost 6 months here in Canada

Anyways, that's it for the introduction - hope to learn a lot from this excellent resource (you guys) and improve my gas mileage.
