Same with my wife. Her car has a Driver Info Center (i.e. built-in scangauge) and she leaves it on the
instantaneous fuel economy reading most of the time and goes easy on the gas pedal to try to maximize the reading, but that's as far as it goes...she'd never post on a website about it.

We would need pictures to verify if this is acceptable.

I am female but not sure if I am a lady! well maybe an "older" lady, being 61.

And I think there are not as many lady motorheads in the eco area, and probably not in the high performance area either. At least I feel like an anomaly. But then I think ecomodders area an anomaly as well...

Hot is a relative term. My dear hubby thinks I am hot but I doubt there are too many others out there who agree with him.
