Frank is worth it. Worth much more than all the scams out there promising results, but in the end turn out to really be just shady hustlers.

Right! He already has an '88 Toyota. But I guess we're supposed to fix that too.

Start with the simple low cost techniques first. Read as much as you can on the aerodynamics of the pickup truck, read the hypermiler tips, and then attach a small balloon to the gas pedal. Next keep good records and maintenance schedules. Use a mountain bike and trailer for trips under 10 miles. Frank, your consulting rate is way too low if you expect to be taken seriously. Wait, take Frank seriously? What was I thinking!
