(But "important as ever"? The general public hasn't really cared about fuel economy for going on 3 years!)

It's a solid article. I like that they lay out the cost of speeding as item number one. In terms of consumption...
Important as ever, as that's the only way to address the normies if you want to change their behavior. This is the norm, better comply!
Apparently they really want everyone to drive economically.
2011 Honda Insight + HID, LEDs, tiny PV panel, extra brake pad return springs, neutral wheel alignment, 44/42 PSI (air), PHEV light (inop), tightened wheel nut.
lifetime FE over 0.17 Gmeter or 0.1 Mmile.

It always takes longer than you expect, even when you take into account Hofstadter's Law.
