Hypermilers News bit on Fox6 Milwaukee

Hey Everyone,

Here is a link to a news bit that was on the Milwaukee Fox affiliate.

It's focus is on "hypermilers" and stars several members of the Milwaukee Hybrid Group who I have met and Wayne of CleanMPG.com

The camera crew actually showed up at the meeting WHILE I was doing my presentation on my motorcycle (with the cycle IN the library!)
I didn't get any mention in this story of my cycle, but I guess you have to USE gas to get high-miles-per-gallon.

Think I got a link to work now!

Try this one:

Ahhh, I was waiting to see this segment. Too bad I missed Bradlee's email before it aired! I swear, they shot perfectly so they missed a shot of the ol Paseo in the parking lot. Thanks for posting Ben.

Yeah, I saw one shot where I was showing off the motorcycle about 10 feet away.

They also did a bit on the Green Car Workshop held at Milwaukee Area Technical College a little bit back. In there, there's a shot that exactly DOESN'T include Daox and I in it.

SEE VIDEO THROUGH THIS LINK HERE

This one also has a bit of Bradlee Fons of the Milwaukee Hybrid Group.
