You Know You're An EcoModder if:

You strip all the body plastic off of your 65 mpg 250cc maxi-scooter to put a
Vetter fairing on it plus other mpg enhancements and hope you bust the 100
mpg mark when you are done. ...... because basically you're cheap and
you can and want to, not because of some misguided notion about man-made
global warming.

You are trying to figure out how to get an electric bike running on $30 worth of LiFePO4 cells (I found some cells at $100/kwh at a B&M store.)

you pack 500 pounds of snow in the bed of your pickup so you can test what a full tonneau cover is like and it works!

You see a headline containing "P&G" and your first thought is Pulse and Glide. The article is about Proctor and Gamble.

When you go to apply a new registration sticker to your license plate, and you feel
somewhat guilty because you didn't take the old ones off: it's at least 5 deep,
and your mind is saying you are adding needless WEIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
