I always knew there was something I could do to save money at the pump. Finding you guys opened my eyes to a world of changes and enhancements that I could easily adapt.

I have since realized that no one has ever taught us how to drive, simply operate the machinery we sit in. I have since learned the difference and will use this experience to advance both my career, education and the education of my children.

We are the ultimate grass roots, and will see the benefits of our labor years down the road when it becomes cool.

LOL at reason #7!

I could reasonably select every answer except #3, but I picked 1 and 10 as the most important.

Since I'm eco-driving, I'm asked why I'm trying to save gas. Since a couple months people knowing me are asking me why I'm always trying to save gas. I'm always replying that the Earth is always not saved and as usually they laughed at me...

The worse side of that story is that this time these people are peasants !!!

As security software aren't necessarily written in a secure way, you don't have to love the Earth to work the ground...

Since this week-end, the gasoline is cheaper than 4 years ago, so both gasoline and diesel are under 1€/L (5.3$/g). While there is always a good percentage that are still limiting their speed, the jerk switch is officially at WOT again...
