I've never even heard of animenfo.com, it must blow or something.
Either get a pedicure or wear some shoes. If you're going to show your feet in every pic you take at least make them look good.

Good idea for a general info page. You kinda need a Wiki page for this, but keep up the good work.

Some now well-known articles:

http://www.maxmpg.org/the_cap.html

PDF warnings:
http://www.nasa.gov/centers/dryden/p...ain_H-2283.pdf
http://www.osti.gov/fcvt/2000-01-2209.pdf

...though I haven't seen the idea adapted to vehicles smaller than a pickup truck.

90CivicStandard: I'll do what I can to split up the driving techniques.

SilveredWings: Thanks for those links! Lots of good reading in the pdfs.

Added a bunch of things from http://www.fuelsaving.info . I didn't place all of them in "busted" categories since, to be fair, Tony's opinions are based on theory and not necessarily absolute results (plus I haven't even heard of a few of these). If there was other debunking information then I considered them busted.

Please look through them. If you know of any other info, post it!

I'm still thinking about how to add your a-b-a testing bit. How about you make a new thread under the experiments section with that info and I'll talk to matt about it being stickied and I'll just link it?

Could also throw in the removal of AC or power steering belts.
Also you could use this for increase tire PSI for FE.

Thank you!

I changed the alternator/belt section to alternator/accessory belt. We haven't quantified the gains per component, but we know it works.
