I do it to keep my cost of living low...just a fancy way of saying I'm cheap, lol. I also like the fact that I'm contributing to the reduction in the use of gasoline in general too.

We sold our truck and bought the 5 for all of the reasons above, but just plain nerdiness and engineering compell me to keep futzing with it.

If I get to put disc wheel covers or rear wheel fairings on the car, I will have pulled something off with my wife. She is however already impressed that I can match the FE of the hybrid Escape we sold last year.

Who doesn't want to save the world while saving a few buck?

money, environment, and my way of sticking it to big oil punks. I also just moved like 20 miles across town, and have to drive quite a bit more to and from work. So I am hoping to get good enough to even it out a bit, Oh and I also quit smoking may 18th. So I am helping the environment in 2 ways! LOL!

ALL OF THE ABOVE!
It was hard to choose just one option. I ultimately want to lower my greenhouse emissions while saving money, but once I started I began to enjoy competing with myself and bragging to my friends. It's all good.

Ranking preference might have made a better poll.
1. I like the technical challenge.
2. I like saving money.
3. I apparently like to brag about my mileage. Sometimes I tell people that don't care .

Motives

#1 -- Environmental impacts, including emissions
#2 -- I love the challenge of driving and learning about the car (making my own repairs, interpreting the ECU, TCU, etc.) + I needed to slow down a be more calm behind the wheel (really helped out)
#3 -- GasSavers is a great place to hang out -- so the sense of community has a good perk
#4 -- Saving money is a fringe benifit
