Your wheel cover falls off, and the only thing you worry about is the aero-impact, not the looks or the car or where it went.

You can think of your 46mpg Yaris as a gas guzzler...

... You spend 2 hours creating an Excel spreadsheet to track your fuel economy and compare your fuel savings to another vehicle or MPG number (pm me with your e-mail address if you want a copy of my spreadsheet)

YKTAEMW....

You glare at that Prius ahead of you not only because they merged right in front of you without their blinker, but because they got better mileage than you while they did it.

You spend time looking into Prius and Civic Hybrid wheels, Prius b/c they're alloys with that rim that can snap in, which a pizza pan can attach to, and Civic Hybrid wheels b/c they have a flat surface.

You think your car's shape looks better after it's sat out in the snow for an evening.

You undermined the car's stock air deflectors to install your own.

You see your area's snowfall as a challenge to get around, not a reason to not put that air deflector about three inches from the ground.

When you park your car, and look out at it in the parking lot, it is the smallest, most unusual looking car out there, yet also the most interesting.

Your car is your desktop background picture, and it bothers you it doesn't have your latest aero-mod on it.

You automatically start critiquing the aerodynamics of every car you see.

Your gas gauge reads empty but you don't worry and keep driving for another 100 miles

I did that before I learned hypermiling

of course, I actually ended up running out of gas sometimes...

LOL. I drive a Geo so a bad tank for me is 40 MPG. Unless I'm going on a long trip I don't fill-up before I've driven 400 miles on the tank.
