Then, again, you know you're a UniCorn Hypermiler if...

...you can't put gasoline into your tank because all your "savings" techniques, tricks & add-on devices are exceeding your fuel usage (wink,wink)

You risk running out of fuel to attain that 500 mile tank.

You wear light weight clothes so you don't have to run your A/C.

You know you are a hypermiler when: it seems that people intentionally follow you around, just to mess up your EOC.

That means you've bought the wrong winter tyres

I'm pretty hard pressed to see the difference.

It looks like the airco is worse than winter ...

YKYAHM when...
... Your brother-in-law give you a ride and you notice that he is ... pulsing and gliding!
I haven't talked to him about it yet, so I don't know if it is my influence or whether he discovered it himself.

- you get upset at this thread being resurrected because now you have to add the step of thinking about whether something belongs in YKYAHM or YKYAEM.

Maybe we should get @n@l and go through the YKYAEM thread and move all of its YKYAHM posts to here?
Just joking
Maybe we can make spammers do it as punishment?

...you can't wait to get fuel and see the numbers.
...you're not sure if your car can still idle or not.

I've only done that once, but I loved it. A slow-moving car was about to screw up my good coast, then I realized I could pass him.

- Your calendar has the Julian date to show you when a fill-up is going to knock that bad tank off your 90 day average.

- You don't knock bad tanks off your 90 day average because average tank distance is forever.
