365 Ways to Save Gas

I was in Barnes & Noble today browsing around and came across this book.

I figured it was just like all of the other crappy fuel saving books out there, but was pleasantly surprised to find some really good tips in there.

Has anyone read this before? I think I am going to go back tomorrow and finish reading it.

I bought it.... as with everything else, there are some that hypermilers will not agree with. #77 gives 5 reasons not to coast downhills.

Saw this book a couple weeks ago when looking for books on aerodynamics.

Some interesting things. Seemed to repeat itself a few times.
A couple things I havent thought of.

Yeah, I only read through the first 50 or so pages, but there seemed to be some questionable stuff in there... but the majority of the information was good, and written in a entertaining mannor. I can't remember which pages they were, but there were a few that I didn't agree with.

But for the most part, I think it's a good book to buy for people who are less interested than us in FE, but still want to save at the pump.

Agreed, normal people need to read it and get rid of the window flags on their cars.
