EPA Blog: Do You Hypermile?

The EPA has an official blog called "Greenversations" that chronicles weekly topics by the Government agency.

This weeks topic is "Have You Tried Hypermiling and What’s Been Your Experience?"

This might be a good place to put in your 2-cents on your fuel saving experiences (and hopefully combat the negative press it sometimes tends to receive).

EDIT: Here's the updated LINK that should work (thanks Darin).

I think that may have beena media link. The public comments to the question are here: Greenversations Question of the Week: Have you tried hypermiling and what’s been your experience?

I made my post... hope it makes it past moderation. Like I always say, HM is not about being hyper -- it's just common sense for me.
