hypermiling nick names

What are some of the cool nick names you have given to common hypermiling tips?

I'm sure that I'm not the only one who does this.

Here are a few of mine:

DWL - Riding the roller coaster (good for explaining the tactic to other people)
DWL - speed bleed (referring only to the uphill climbing portion)

BSFC acceleration - 'bang for your buck acceleration' (to describe getting the most power per unit of fuel, as opposed to either taking too long to reach cruising speed, or conversely redlining the engine with WOT)

EcoDriving: Turning more fuel into usable forward motion.
