When you pulse and glide the fork truck at work without thinking about it.

The fork truck is funny, wonder if anyones noticed and what they'd think?

I intentionally leave my 12 packs of soda in the car over night and use them as cooling mass in the refrigerator the next day. Sometimes they get cold enough to stay icy for more than a day!

YKYAEMW....

You want to replace your wheels JUST so you can put wheel covers on.

Finally, you found the sweet spot, where you get good mileage at about 30MPH when the speed limit is 35MPH, so that SUV on your bumper can WAIT!

You almost get a leg cramp when you found a perfect spot on your pedal to get high mileage at a consistent speed.

Or you do this when pushing a shopping trolley around Morrisons.

YKYAEM when you can tell an ecomodder from afar by noticing the stinky socks with holes and burn marks left up on their dash ;-)

YKYAEM when you drive up to the pump knowing approximately how many gallons (max) you can buy, and still hit a new MPG personal record.

If you're willing to pay more for ethanol free gas because you know you'll get better MPG and the extra cost will be outweighed by the increase in MPG
