Quick question for you with hypermiller status:

How do you get in big blue lettering the HYPERMILLER status in your profile?
It's right under the big black lettering that says GASSAVERS.ORG
thanks

I think you have to exceed the EPA rating by 20.1% or more and then it's automatic.

Ahh, I see. Hopefully I can get there then. I've been hovering at 18.xx% for a while now.

The only way for me to get there is if I get on the tractor and drag all the gravel off the road and let it sit as packed clay. I?m not sure what the state and the other farmers would think but I would get my MPG up. I think I?m stuck at 35 to 36 mpg in my car if I keep driving on that gravel road.

Really? I'm 61.8% over EPA rating, and I don't have the Hypermiler tag.

I see the hypermiler tag when I go view your garage... I'm quite sure you have to average 20% or more over EPA for the past 90 days to get the hypermiler badge. I don't think one good tank will activate it.
