Recently I had pneumonia for a month, and my mind was so "spacey" I couldn't hypermile. Yes, I just drove! No looking at traffic, no timing lights, shifting whenever I wanted, no coasting. It was actually a kind of weird experience.
yea, any time I've been up 20+ hours and very active during it.

Looks like it was pretty much just as good as ever...
I'm pretty sure it dropped about 1-2mpg during this time. But I only fill up once a month, so perhaps the drop got diluted out. Now I'm thinking I was still hypergliding to some extent subconsciously.
(As an aside: every time I see my measly "21% above" I wish this site calculated mpg based on the riding environment. I drive almost all urban, i.e. rush hour on city streets, in-the-city not long suburban roads, lots of stop lights, lots of stop-and-go. Compared to the epa for that I'm about 35% above epa.)
When I just go for a drive it's USUALLY like my drive last night. Just a drive to clear my head, I'm not paying much attention to things around me and I'm reflecting so I drive very easy and calm, I think I get some of my best mileage driving like that. No EOC or anything, just put her in drive and go.
I can't imagine how I'm going to do that when I get a manual transmission.
