What a savings!

Hi all:

I have saved a ton of fuel by hypermiling. I was a very aggressive driver and now hypermile as a challenge among other reasons.

I started out by practicing better driving THEN I got the Scan Gauge II... huge MPG improvements within a few tanks.

My old average was 18.5 and now its 24. Combined epa is 19.5 in mostly highway. I'm wondering how to setup a profile to share my success story with precise fuel economy.

Thanks for all of your posts, BIG help!

Thank you! I started a search on google about the 2011 Hyundai Sonata... I didn't find what I was looking for regarding the car but I did find an interesting article about Hyundai offering a Sonata Hybrid tester to Wayne Gerdes to hypermile. That's when I learned about hypermiling. Later, I learned how to properly use a scan gauge to get the best MPG's. It revealed how wasteful, at the very least, what "normal" driving can be.

It just makes sense to me to save a projected $1k per year in gas!

Oh and a correction regarding my first post. I meant to say the EPA combined is 19.5. MY driving is mostly highway, alebit very hilly highway.

Thanks,
Tyler
