Haaaaa!
Me too, I only get gas every two weeks and by the second week I can barely see out the back, so I pull in all the time just to wash the back window!
Get a lot of funny looks

You know you are an ecomodder when you consider tailgating a truck to get to work faster.

You Know You're An Ecomodder when you fill up so infrequently, you can't remember how to work your gauge cluster to check your mileage!

Seriously, I could not remember how to work the Insight gauge cluster! lol, I didn't want to erase anything prematurely, so I didn't screw with it before I filled up, and it was SO cold I didn't explore after I filled up. So for this tank, I didn't pull my LMPG- but I doubt it went anywhere with such a poor performance.

You know you're an Ecomodder when you've thought of a way to use all the trip meters provided. Trip A is reset each tank, Trip B is reset each morning, and the segment meter is reset each trip.

I don't have any difficulties with the simple instruments of an old Yaris - but I tend to forget which side is the filler on

(But now, I'll remember it's on the other side as of my bike! At least I hope so )

YKYAEI when it takes more time to reset your on board computer 1, then 2, then recalibrate the SG2 than it does to fill up in the first place - including paying, perusing the free gift and buying crisps...

Edit and that is 65 Litres....

YKYAEI when stopped behind vehicles, you can't stop noticing all the items in the airstream (suspension, spare tires, mufflers), and think about how you would design a belly pan.
