Hello,

I've been getting into hypermiling because a friend of mine has introduced me to it. He has gone as far as to put aero mods on his car. I have been driving less aggressively, p&g(when I can), and I'm borrowing his scangauge for a few days.

Obviously there are the general tips, but I was wondering if anyone had anything car specific to suggest to me. I also wouldn't mind those general tips. I'm welcome to just about anything, I barely know anything about hypermiling other than I know I would like to save money on gas.

another point I'd like is which scangauge I might want to purchase for myself?

Thanks guys I look forward to checking around the site.

Welcome! Your specific questions might be better posed in the General Effeciency
section.

Don't be afraid to bump up your tire psi. at least 5-7#'s.
