Mark your MPG on your windows and raise awareness!

I thought I'd share..

I use window marking stuff from Autozone to post my mpg onmy window..
It gets people looking at it and thinking..

It also explains why i'm driving like I do without spelling it out

Mite be the thing needed to get Hypermodders into more spotlight..

<---Trend setter

Same setup people use for marking their ET's for drag racing,
and I figured since MPG is the new HP, there ya have it

I have no shame




also, when I gas up, people in full size trucks stare with jaws dropped with that "shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit" look of failure

With boattail and the right gearing you'll be able to make the hybrid owners jaws drop. I don't think the big pickup drivers would believe it if ya got 50+mpg.

Very Cool because everyone here is always saying, I need a bumper sticker to say Hypermiler or whatever to explain their driving. Well this says it way better. AndrewJ should deff do this since I imagine him getting all kinds of looks driving his modded Civic (someone at another forum saw his car and took a picture of it to ridicule it on the other forum, which is how I found this site).

I've actually had this idead in my mind where I loose the tailgate alltogether and then go outwards past the bumper for a litte boat tail action..

I'd have to relocate my taillights, but my mind is always clicking around..

I love the shock factor (look at me) attention I seem to be getting, noting but positive

I actually just did this last week with some 3" vinyl letter stickers from the hardware store.

I've gotten more questions about the car in the last week than in the previous 2-3 months!

In short, posting your MPG works

Oh and if you're getting questions about your gas mileage, you may want to print out a few of these to help spread the word.
