You know you're a hypermiler when you see an engine with the alternator easily accessible and think "that'd be a perfect fit for an electric-assist setup!"

MPG up along with my dethawed piggies on my feets

Not super comparable but yesterday it was -20 and today it was 10 so much better lolol
This whole dry snow thing is so strange to the southerner in me. This is actually the first time I've driven in actual snow not just ice lol
A friend of mine left a job early because of an approaching blizzard. The snow blocked his pickup grille so well that he barely made it home, overheating.

There is no excuse for a land vehicle to weigh more than its average payload.
