Recently my mother has been driving in a less aggressive way, but her musical preferences won't change

Traffic does not effect the mileage on a hybrid even a large SUV

Week day in heavy traffic
212.00 miles 8.283 gallons 25.60 MPG 4.399 30%
158.00 miles 6.892 gallons 22.92 MPG 4.399 15%
Weekend same route
164.00 miles 6.224 gallons 26.35MPG 4.399 10%
186.00 miles 8.607 gallons 21.61MPG 4.229 30%
159.00 miles 6.184 gallons 25.71MPG 3.999 10%


the BEST ever was 28.7MPG combined at 212 miles

Nice figures for a suv, but what has this got to do with music listening and hypermiling?

I read or watched a study recently.

I said that listening to music that you like elevates your heart-rate. The info concluded that that was not good but I fail to remember why. (Could even be a youtube video on ecomodder)

I listen to music all the time I'm in the car unless I'm with my wife.

She doesn't care for my music choices (there's a bunch of Korn, Drowning Pool, Disturbed, Limp Bizkit, GnR, Rage, Tool, etc. . . old 80's & 90's rock on my iPod) and I'm pretty deaf so any background noise makes it hard for me to understand her.

But I'm blasting it while I hypermile the Volt and it really doesn't affect me cause I've usually got the cruise control on anyway.
