... You put your car's fuel log up on Spritmonitor.de just so that you can be first in your model's category.
(My life time avg at the moment is 4.65 l/100km, the next best is 4.71 but has been inactive for the last 2 years, the next active is 4.83, while the avg for all 104 cars is 6.22.)

YKYAEM if Google ads always show you things like "Bio-diesel conversion" and various small cars, even when you're on a site about computer hardware.

I do find it a bit creepy, but also surprising, as I spend more time looking at computer-related stuff than FE stuff. Then again, maybe they know I don't care much for big brand computers.

... On some days you pass more cars on your bike than while driving.

... You try your best to get great milage and the only people who care are a bunch of freaks over at some ecomodding forum.

... You don't use enough fuel to qualify for a "frequent buyer" card at your local gas station. Well, you'd hardly notice the savings anyway

... The only aggressive thing about your driving style is aggressive use of P&G.

... You're the only person you know that forgot to start his engine while driving.

YKYAEM...when amidst a bunch of friends talking, you are the weird one for not just 'filling it up and driving.'

You super hyper mile your motorcycle beyond normal , because the backroads are so quiet nobodies around to prevent you from VERY purposely coasting down almost to almost a seemingly crawl to not brake or downshift at all for a fun corner, and it's still fun anyway!

Because it IS a motorcycle; one can hypermile using racing lines through sweeping curves, and still pull a nice lead away from a car!

... while enduring the Starship 2000 ride at the county 4-H fair, you not only try to keep your stomach contents where they belong, but also wonder how much energy could be recouped if it was equipped with regenerative braking.

On a related note, whoever said "having kids keeps you young" didn't know what the heck they were talking about!

Your mom barrows your car it is annoying because she dropped your average by 10mpg, and then filled the tank without keeping the recept so the fuel usage data is gone for the last 500 miles.

... When the weather turns bad on a weekend trip you wonder about the weight penalty of carrying the sunglasses you didn't get a chance to use.

... You can't decide whether to clean your car's solar roof (smoother surface = less drag) or not (more dust = less solar gain).

... Two of the first things you check when researching a possible new car to buy is:
(a) How easy it would be to mount a Kammback on the rear hatch,
(b) Whether there is a block heater available for its engine.

... You use terms like: P&G, PNG, EO(ff)C, EO(n)C, DWL, LOG, GLEN, DFCO, BSFC, bump start, etc., while most drivers only know 'drive' and 'stop'.

... You can't get a wheel clamp for illegal parking because of your wheel skirts. Not that I park illegally
