I also just completed it.

Another issue:

"What units did you estimate your fuel economy in? "

Most members here report in US gallons, and there's no option to indicate that (survey likely assumes Imperial gallons). You'll have to cross-reference against country of residence and do conversions for US participants.

"I avoid the use of air conditioning in my vehicle"

No option for "Does not apply."

Same for: "I use park and ride systems where ever possible to avoid traffic"

"The next car I buy will have greater fuel economy"

I indicated "disagree" on this one, which could be misinterpreted as not caring about fuel economy. What my reply means is that my current car is already top of its class, so it's unlikely I'll buy a more efficient one if I stay with the same type/class.

Thanks to everyone who has taken the time time to fill it out.

Sorry it does take a while, I think the average time is about 22 minutes, but it depends on how many strategy and techniques you are able to recall, the more of a hyper-miler you are I guess the longer it will take! And I will cross reference fuel economy with country so if you are in the US i assume US gallon and US litre/ liter.

I get what you mean by the lack of a NA option in the questionnaire, unfortunately what you tend to see if you use that in a questionnaire is people just tick that and don't think too much about the question.

Most of the issues I'm hearing are related to questions at the end, these are from a standardised questionnaire which has been used to measure environmental concern and behavioural motivations. This feedback is really useful for me to suggest that it may not be the definitive scale some researchers say it is.

Thanks everyone for taking the time to do it. I am really interested in how expert hyper-milers differ in their driving behaviour to the average driver, so you are all really valuable participants for me and I really appreciate your time.

Yeah sorry it does take about 25 mins to do. Try to ask about things that matter but time adds up. Trying to collect enough responses is really difficult.

I was certainly overwhelmed when I started looking into eco-driving and hyper-miling and I's starting to think that the initial amounts that you have to think about may be a barrier that could be overcome with some guidance and clear documentation, we'll see what the results of the questionnaire suggest!

All done. You may need to carefully interpret some answers with reference to hybrid owners/drivers

Thanks for doing it simon! Its really appreciated

Yeah I'm going to split it up quite a bit when I'm going through the data. It will be analysed a lot. And i'll consider the impact of a variety of different variables, including engine type
