The people driving behind you suspect both your brake lights are burnt out.

or, 2 of your 3 brake lights are burnt out but it doesn't bother you since you hardly use the brakes any way.

You know you're a ecomodder if you want gas prices to get higher so you can sit around comfy and watch everyone else sweat it out.

YKYAEM when you've already gone over 470 miles on your tank, and you won't fill-up until you've driven another 40+ miles. And your car only has an 11.1 total US gallon tank. I'm shooting to beat my record of 57.14MPG that I set a couple days ago.

... You wait with your errands until the hottest time of the day so that the trans and bearings have a shorter warmup time.

I'll go with the opposite, since I live in Tucson AZ.
YKYAEM because you wait until night to run errands since running the headlights uses less fuel then the airconditioner. (high of 101F today in Tucson).
