Basic Hypermiling video

Just posted a hypermiling video, figured I should share it here. I hope you guys know this stuff already, but we get new people every day.

I'll think about it. Filming more advanced hypermiling videos will require interior shots, and potentially multiple cameras. I will definitely have to plan ahead to make such videos, the video above was easy to take just dashcam footage since it is easy to understand what is going on.

I think it was perfect. More of the same would work great. Or even unedited with notes at timestamps that have action.

I'm very impressed with the video, I liked that hard left with the tire scream. This is what I like about ecodriving. Hardcore dude, keep it up

If you are talking about the turn at 35 seconds in, that was just coins sliding, still no tire squealing yet. I usually don't turn that hard since at that point there is quite a lot of speed scrubbed off. That and the margin for error becomes even smaller.

Nice if I had worthwhile equipment, I'd try similar videos. Covers the basics nicely. I'd love to try my hand at Matt Farah-style one take reviews, while I'm at it.

Might see if there's anything you can do on the freeway? That's what seems to be holding me back ATM. Off-freeway I'm semi-lazy and still run around 15% better numbers.

Well, I will be doing an approximately 40 mile trip trip tomorrow which should include a good bit of highway driving. I will try to stream it a little bit after I leave my house. No guarantee as to when I will leave, but look for the stream around 10AM to noon(my time). For reference, it is 9:25 as I post this.

EDIT: RIP, can't livestream for 24 hours, didn't prepare. Oh well.
