New here-so far so good!

Greetings! I signed up here a couple of weeks ago and right now I'm on my third tank of hypermiling. So far, the first 2 tanks have been about 37mpg and 36 mpg and now the 3rd tank appears to be pushing 40mpg!

I have a 2007 Nissan Versa 6-speed that is only rated at 29mpg combined, so I'm doing pretty well! I'm not extreme - I mainly coast in neutral when I can, accelerate slowly, coast to stops and keep my highway speed in check.

I've seen some posters doubt the effectiveness of driving slower and coasting. All I can say is look at my numbers - you don't have to be extreme to see real results. I am soooooo glad I opted for the manual transmission, though. I think it makes it much easier.

I look forward to learning more here and seeing other results!

Welcome. Congratulations on getting good results. You are correct, you certainly don't need to be extreme to produce good results.
This sig may return, some day.
