a tailgating, cell phone using, b-boy says, "you drive like a b*tch!".

Ecomodding isn't the same as hypermiling.

...3000 RPM seems high.
...50 MPH feels fast.
...seeing an idling parked car annoys you.

when the extra 800 Lb of rock in the back of your car to take to work makes you get better MPG then when the car was empty (longer coasts)

You know you are a hypermiler when;

...You leave for work a half hour earlier than you used to, and get to work later, and don't stop for coffee anymore.

... You used to play the "punch-bug" game on road trips, but now play the "Prius-pass" game( same as punch-bug, but only when a Prius passes you).

...A guy at work asks if you've converted your car to electric, because he's never heard the engine running as you pull into your parking place, from the road, around the shop, and the road goes by HIS parking place( about a half mile total).

... you laugh at the people who pass you, only to pass them because you timed the red light, at which they had to stop...

Or (as posted in the other thread...) you enter a roundabout last and leave it first - without touching the 'go' peddle.
