never really got started back in '12

I joined this community many moons ago looking to save fuel on my commute. Well now I'm back with a different commute and a different car. A 95 Lexus with 169k on the clock. I don't think I'm doing terrible. This time I'll stick around longer I think

It's not about any particular commute, although the commute gives you a concrete goal. Welcome back.

Agreed, I save fuel everywhere I go. I even save fuel on my motorcycle (which is more of my toy and have a lot of fun with). The techniques you learn can always apply, even if you're in a hurry you can save fuel.

Welcome back!
It's all about 'adjusting the nut behind the wheel' .... And raising the tire psi above 40!

Second: Grille Block

Third: Full underbelly pan

Fourth: rear skirts and 30.4mpg on trip!

Thanks guys. Ive been consistently shocked by how easy this car is to hypermile. I had to work to get 40% over EPA with my Saturn. I don't even neutral coast with this, let alone EOC. I think I can get my high score up a few more clicks. I fill up tomorrow. Can't wait to see
