Yeah, but some of the people I associate with think that hypermiling is crazy, but then they marvel @ my MPG knowing that I drive mostly in stop & go city traffic.

perhaps a flier attached to the passenger dashboard explaining all about hypermiling. it would keep them quiet while you are busy saving fuel.

You might want to fix the misspelling. It's "engage". And "brilliant"...though that one's not getting pasted to a glove box so it doesn't matter as much.

Did a controlled test on Sunday, driving to church with the family on board. That's about 200lb extra. 57.4 mpg there, 55.1 back. My average for that route, driving solo, is 63 mpg. I hypermiled it to the best of my ability, and weather and traffic were simply perfect.

+200 lb (+9% weight) = 11% worse MPG.
