Hi Gas Savers Members:

I decided to see if I still had it: And I do as the Pics will show.

I was thinking to myself yesterday and what the thought was, is this. I wonder what the FE/MPG would be if I watched how I drove on the way to work and picked my route accordingly. So I did just that today. I skipped the interstate and took the back roads and timed the lights (The-Best-I-Could) and drove as smooth as I could with very easy excelleration from stops. There were many stops and hills but I still wanted to see how things would work out. Also I did not change the HVAC Settings or (Turn-Off) the System. Temp. was set at 75 Degrees just like any other day. Also I did not (Coast) with (Engine-Off). No Tricks other than just watching how I drove. Major key was Very Light Excelleration and Driving-Smooth.

No Hypermiling Tricks Here:

Well here is the results:

(1) Picture of HVAC set at 75-Degrees and todays Date & Time:

(2) Picture here is the MPG Gage:

So not bad for just driving the HCH II with No-Tricks:

52.4 MPG

Nice! What's the city EPA for that car? I bet you did better than city EPA?

Currently getting +/- 50 mpg in fall weather. EPA is 31/39 so not too shabby. WAI, fuel cutoff switch, full belly pan, smooth wheel covers.

Now driving '97 Civic HX; tires ~ 50 psi. '89 Volvo 240 = semi-retired.

LOL, "no hypermiling tricks". You are driving a hypermiling trick

P.S. I tend to think of it as "Good energy management" rather than the more controversial "hypermiler" or "tricks".

Good numbers though, isn't it fun to turn in town mpg on its head?

Way more than "light" excelleration! That is heavy duty excelleration. Nice job.
