EcoAdvertising at the pumps

So there's always this huge gas line at the BJ's Wholesale Club near my house. I thought it would be fun to hand out flyers to the people waiting in their cars (and idling their engines with the AC blaring...)

I worked out a little two-sided flyer with 14 of the hypermiling tips. I picked the ones that I figured are the most effective, least redundant, and easiest to do. The point is just to get people to think about their driving and maybe visit the site.

I'm not very good with graphics, so I'm posting a pdf and doc format of my flyer. If anyone wants to improve it, please feel free. Just make sure to post whatever you change.

It would be neat if we ended up with a professional looking flyer that anyone on the forum could use to campaign if they felt so inclined.

Great job :-)

As I live in France and everybody is speaking French here, the best improvement I may contribute is to translate it.

I was thinking about translating the 100+ hypermiling tips, but there is a few things that will have to be changed as automatics are rather rare by here and the law is different, per ex. in a multi-lane road you are not allowed to choose which one you drives in : you must use the right one and use the others only to take over.

I encourage everybody to distribute these fine words. More they are known, less CO2 is released.
