Entering a 93 Corolla with 38mpg and rising

Hello,
My name is Will, I live in Binghamton NY. My car does not have a name. I already use hypermiling techniques to get 36 city, 38 hwy. My goal is to improve this mileage, hopefully breaking 40 on a regular basis, and installing the MPGuino to help out a little. I also hope to help anyone else who has a similar vehicle with techniques and with MPGuino installation. Going to be getting a Vespa or Kymco scooter soon too.

I urge everyone to check out the Hydristor as well - most efficiency is lost in the gearbox with the mechanical transfer of energy, so the hydristor basically makes the transmission hydraulic to eliminate the loss in efficiency with mechanical transfer. The inventor is a really nice local guy who has no intention of selling his patents to some big auto company to be thrown into a file cabinet forever. Check it out.

Welcome to EM! I've heard of hydraulic hybrids, including the noisy part. Wasn't Ford working on one for their trucks?

Google google google ... Here's are some hybrid hydraulic examples in the works:
