i contacted my local paper about this subject (and hypermiling) and was told that they are working on a "big" story about a hypermiler from melbourne, florida.

for the rest of you, i'll keep you informed.

well here it is...

one word, BOGUS!

he says he gets 30 mpg(23 to 53) more than EPA. well he's comparing(new EPA) hwy vs combined mileage, and we all know the new estimates are easily beatable.

dropping 100 lbs can add 2% to economy. REALLY?
