Gift Idea

I am looking for a gift idea for a coledge age student.
About him, He is into hypermilling, does not drive over 60mph, turns off car coming up to lights. He does not belive in global warming. He belives in the atkins diet.
Price range is $35
Unique gifts are good.

I know from my college days putting gas in the car was always a challenge. Have you thought of getting a gift card for his favorite fuel station? That's the only thing I can think of in that price range... and I've been thinking about it for a while.

How about the new-style solid wiper blades? They're too expensive to bother buying for one's self but they're good for a gift. They last forever, you just replace the insert and they're like new again.

If there are Costco stores nearby, give a Costco Cash Card. He can buy anything he wants, including gas cheaper than the surrounding stations.

Thanks for all the ideas. I know a gas card makes the most sence but it is boring.
I desided on the Book Freakonomics and a Kill A Watt.

I think a set of Split Fire spark plugs should fit right into your budget.
