Hypermiling survey

Hi Guys,

We are two students doing a project on hypermiling.

It would be a great help if you would take 5 minutes to answer the following short survey:

Nice survey, short and to the point. I'd add 'national energy independence' or something similar to the list of reasons to hypermile though, and perhaps make that a multiple entry question because many do it for more than one reason.

Regarding your motivation question, I did a poll a while back on that:

Replied. I picked number 4 on "how often" because I have three cars- I have a hard time keeping my right foot out of the Rabbit, and well, the F100 doesn't like fancy stuff. But 95% of the time the Probe is hypermiled!

Survey results are interesting, I chose 4/5 for how often I hypermile as well, just for the fact some days I'm either being lazy and put less effort into it, or the conditions make it hard to perform.

Most interesting thing... so far 100% are male, I figured atleast 2-3% would be female.
