Via Jalopnik: While We're At It, Here Are Some Real Hypermilers


It's always fun getting linked from Jalopnik.

Despite their recent post squeezing an impressive 72 mpg (US) from the Euro spec diesel Civic hatchback, I think it's fair to say the typical Jalopnik reader doesn't fire the synapses too often on the subject of the pursuit of efficiency.

EG. their idea of beating the EPA involves sticks & clubs.

Just joshin' - they're not all that bad.

In fact, the first comment under the post about the forum was unabashedly complimentary - about Brett's streamlined pickup cap:
