Not always - before my hypermiling days I was on a long trip on the freeway with some friends while listening to random CD's from my CD changer when one of them told me:
- You really like Bob Marley, no?
- Yes, why?
- Well it makes you drive at 50 mph... it will take a long time to get there!

Had not noticed I let the speed drop down from 70 mph... while paying attention to traffic no less, but apparently not to speed

YKYAEM, when there is a downpour and to help with FE you WILL draft the semi NOT because of the air but because of the water planning!

When I realized what I was doing, chuckles, chuckles... and rolled my eyes

YKYAEM when you think about changes to the glide characteristics of your car.

And when you're complaining about too many cylinders when you say:

When you see election signs and wish election was over to recycle the coraplast into a full underbody tray. Who cares who wins they all lie.

When you see this and think "What a waste..."

when your former aero civc clone (aerotrix) is put back to stock to please the wife to be..... and I still can use the same engine off coast points.

She asks why the bit of a jerk in the car right at a corner and its because I was not very smooth on the bump restart.

spring is here not due to a date but when the snow tires come off.

Stock car can still get 20% over EPA without trying. with nut adjustment its 30%.

you get looks from the wife (to be) when you talk about the idea car.... and inline 4 is over kill.

you know your still a ecomodder at heart when you start telling her about your dream home..... its small and energy neutral at worst.... energy + to charge the dream car too. and she goes, I can see you wanting that.....

Election signs in coroplast should be MANDATED to be cut into larger pieces for "what-ever" their initial use may be...
Then, ONLY then, they really would be useful to our YKYAEM community

Thus making belly pans a dream come true...
