...if, when visiting your brother, he asks you to look at the AC on his van, and while doing so, you also evaluate it for installing a belly pan.

Youd rather drive at night because the reduced visibility gives you an excuse to go slower.

Sorry to keep this alive, but... you know... when...
... you trust your scangauge more than the factory instruments.
... you don't care how many idiots are tailgating behind you as you coast up to the light.
... you convince others into ecomodding.
... you tell the wife that you'll leave as soon as she can guarantee that you'll only making one trip.
... you refuse to make another trip (the one she forgot).

You know you're an ecomodder...

...when you read through 8 pages of the thread just to be sure you're "you know you're an ecomodder if..." hasn't been posted yet.

...if you have to decide long and hard whether or not to unplug the ScanGuage and plug it into your other car because then the data will be lost.

...when you drive to a friend's house and they let you park in the garage, then when you are getting ready to give him a ride, he comes out of the house and sees you pushing your car out the garage and down the really long (downhill) driveway and gives you a weird look.

You decide to take an open trailler when an enclosed trailer is available just because it will have less aero drag.

Then you re-load your trailer in the most aero configuration you can find even though it means you will have to stop and tighten your load frequently.

YKYAEI it takes you several extra minutes to get out of the car when you get home because you have to check your trip average on the SG and put your right shoe back on.

YKYAEI you are preparing a car for resale, and you look at the grill and underside, trying to decide if you can mod these in a way the next owner won't notice or be tempted to undo.
