when you have flappy paddles but never use them because your CVT is always maxed out, revving slower than the fictitious 7th gear the paddles allow for.

YKYAEM when one or more of your $50 donuts has a sympathetic vibration above 65MPH, but you don't fix it because it's a good over-speed indicator.

YKYAEM when you top off your tank before you let the non-eco driver drive your vehicle and plan to top it back off when they are done!

YKYAEM when you intend to type "MP3" but "MPG" comes out automatically.

Darn muscle memory!

You were trying to type 'MP3' instead of 'MPG'?!?
And you openly admit to attempting to cheat on EcoModder?!?
