TV Newsroom needs your help in MI.

I work as an assignment editor at WOOD TV in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
I would like to find someone who is a hyper miler who would be willing to do a TV story with us. We would like to ride with you and get the hyper miler story out to the public.

Please contact me at

I'm in Lansing

I'm not one of the better hypermilers, but I've improved mileage by about 5 mpg with a few simple suggestions here.

I got interested because I am a full-time law student, travelling to Lansing everyday to study for the bar, while having no income.

I'm free in the afternoons and I'd love to be able to help out.

I'd be willing to help out if some of the more experienced people can coach me by email.

legalrespresentation at yahoo dot com

(Just an email address. I'm not a lawyer.)

With an extra person and camera equipment you might lose some of your FE!

C'mon jamie. You can do it just fine.

I think your car and you would be a great inspiration to TV viewers. Many in your area probably have cars closer in appearance to what you have than pristine new hybrids.

You use your car every day in your commute, winter and summer, rain or shine. You also use it for general family use. You don't have any expensive or complicated mods to explain. Your driving and willingness to try a few things have made the difference.

Just get your facts together in a simple, coherent fashion that anyone can understand. Most of the people watching will be totally new to hypermiling techniques.

You have worked hard to accomplish what you have done. You owe it to others to spread the word of how you did it.

Steve, get after this guy. He is a hard worker that gets results.

Thanks CO ZX2

Do it! You are getting excellent mpg. Just tell them what you know.

I'm a total ham, but I'm a total noob at this hypermiling thing. I'm only 60 miles away. I'm calling Steve tomorrow. Today I had way too much studying to do.
