Well then you have it better than most of us. Check out the 100+ hypermiling tips link on the top of the page. That should get you started. Other than that, what kind of driving is the majority of what you do? City or highway?

Welcome to the site.

Welcome to the site! For me, driving in the St. Louis area with all the construction and congestion going on is a real mileage buster.

I'd say to look to the 100+ tips and make sure everything is in tune. Choose the vehicle that gets the best mileage when possible.

Best FE to ya...
