That's awesome, this kind of thing is something the whole hypermiling community can definitely be thankful for. The more these kinds of things pop up around the country, the more people will start thinking of slow drivers as "conservationists" rather then just that annoying guy who goes 10mph under the limit and the safer it will get on the roads for us all.
