Go Green Or Go Home

Hey whats up. I'm starting a series of instructional videos that educate people how to be more environmentally friendly on youtube, and figured this might be a great place to post.

My first video is about hypermiling, so check it out.

I'd keep the intro down under 2 seconds, and change the advice on acceleration to "avoid full throttle."

I'd change my youtube account's name (or create another one) if I were you, and also talk about alternative transportation as well as hypermiling. But if you live in those wasteful suburbs, need not heed my words.

My own testing also shows better mileage at 70% throttle and avoiding cruise control, but to the average driver I'm sure they are still useful tips.

Constructive criticism on the video itself would be to simply shorten it and have it flow faster.

What exactly does "go green or go home" mean? For us out of the loop codgers to understand. I"m a square but you can watch the language.

Instead of "go green or go home" you could use "go green or walk home"
