My sister does not drive for gas mileage

My sister does not drive for gas mileage. Nope. No way.

When she drove a manual transmission, she did not like to shift gears. So she learned to time traffic lights. Nothing to do with gas mileage. Nope.

When her friends went through a set of brake linings in a year or two, she drove to minimize the use of brakes. Nothing to do with gas mileage. Nope.

These days, she drives a Prius and gets up to 70 MPG. But drive for gas mileage? Nope. No way. She just does not want to waste money burning dead dinosaurs.

I'm OK with that. We just do not discuss gas mileage or hypermiling.

The vacuum gauge plus wheel covers helped increase summer 2015 mileage to 38.5 MPG, while summer 2016 mileage was 38.6 MPG without the wheel covers. Drove 33,021 miles 2016-2018 at 35.00 MPG.
