News Interview with Channel 3 Columbus GA

Ok, so I was able to hook up with the reporter from channel 3 news out of Columbus GA and did an interview with her about hypermiling. It was a lot of fun and I would do it again in a heart beat if I was asked by another news station to do it.

Hypermiling: What is it and Does it Work? | WRBL - News 3, Columbus GA and Opelika-Auburn AL

That's the link to the article ^^, however, I haven't been able to view the video yet, it's not loading for me . If someone could please load it and let me know if you can see it ok I would appreciate it so I can know if it's their site or my laptop (the latter is entirely possible). Also, if you can, throw it on youtube, I know I can view stuff on youtube

FYI: It seems only to work in Safari internet browser...dunno why, but it does.


I almost want to take issue with what she said about my car still having power brakes and power steering when I turn off the car....I know what she meant, but it made it sound like it didn't stop working in my car for some reason.

There are two posted comments that are by obviously ignorant people who don't know what they are talking about.

Later,

Hypermiling is not always about shutting off the engine. Jeez.
