Hypermiling Goes National

Hey, anyone catch the ABC spot about hypermiling last night? I saw the clip on Yahoo in their news section. Don't know how to do a direct link to it so I'll tell you how I got there. In the Yahoo News section, go to the Business videos. There is about a two and a half minute clip about hypermiling called "Drive Like a Hypermiler". Looks ok and they don't slam us too much.

I spent my whole day being interviewed for that piece and then ended up not being in it...

I'll just sit in my corner and be bitter though.

Here you go. I'll have to catch up with my Tivo to see what it looked like on TV, but the website story is pretty neat.

Hi,

Where are the "safe" tips that he mentions at the end of the story?

Thats what I thought. Descent coverage though on the web page. The video was fairly useless and didn't really provide good info.

Hello,

I actually thought this story was decent -- there have been a rash of stories in the past week (gee, I wonder why?), and most have been pretty weak. This story is one of the better ones I've seen/heard, to be frank. Did I miss a better one?
