It would be exhausting to drive far enough in one day for me to use more than one tank!

For me that'd be impossible: I always have a trip average speed of 50-60 km/h (31-37 mph), so assuming 60km/h x 24h = 1440 km (895 mi), without stopping. My tank average is 1300 km (808 mi), but this is for multiple trips. One trip with no stops would mean that the engine is always warmed up, so I'd get at least 1500-1600km.

Soooo, YKYAEM if you cannot use a whole tank in one day

YKYAEM when you see hitchhikers as potential hypermilers. When they get to the inevitable "so how do you like this car... it must get good mileage, huh?" you can tell him exactly why it gets good mileage, and maybe it'll stick.

YKYAEM when don't want to pick up hitchhikers because that's one, maybe two extra stops and a bunch of extra weight.

YKYAEM if you contemplate gliding past the gas station just to honk and wave at the uneducated masses.

I'm not sure if this came up before but YKYA hypermiler if you turn your stove off well before you flipped the eggs! (because you know there is plenty of residual heat left to cook the other side )

This seems like it will not save gas in your car but actually this is the mindset that will help your eco driving! Right? : )

We trained you well, our young Padawan
I've also been "coasting" the stove, and the toaster and oven also. Frank Lee claims that when making pasta you can turn the heat off when the water starts to boil, then just let the pasta sit there in the hot water.

I've "coasted" the grinder in my bro-in-law's workshop - there is enough momentum for 15-25 revolutions, just enough to finish off the job.
