Hello from Gatineau, QC
Great site! I look forward going through all the good stuff here! :thumbup:

I drive a 2008 Chevy Aveo LS 4 Door and the Wife drive a 2005 Hyundai Accent 2 door Hatch.

We have improved our L/100KM's by a large amount. I take the bus so that's a start. The wife used to complain about high mileage. We live far so her daily commute is 50/50 HWY/CTY.

I told her to change her driving habits. Go 90 KM/H instead of 120... Coast to lights. Don't shift above 3K rpm etc.

She was getting 8.9L/100km's combined mileage. With my recommendations, she is now getting 6.3L/100km's combined mileage!

That's a good start! I'm taking on the challenge of reducing this to 5.9L/100km's combined!

Welcome to the site. You have two pretty good FE cars there.

Thanks for the Welcome! I'm so cheap when it comes time to spend money for gas... So that's why we have 2 small FE cars. Now, with Hypermilling, it should inmprove! :)

Bigs - welcome! I think you're officially now the closest member to me - I'm just down the 416 on the St Lawrence.

Thanks Metro! Not too far at all! I used to live in Orleans!
