I’ve seen a few successes posted here and there on the web, written by people who have employed hypermiling techniques successfully to get better gas mileage.
I will start posting some of the links I come across as I think its important for my blog readers to be able to see whether people really can and do get better gas mileage by hypermiling.
Here is one post I came across today:
Hypermiling with an Old Toyota – This blogger increased his average MPG on his old Toyota from about 25 miles per gallon to about 32 miles per gallon.
At Intersections there is a post from another blogger who increased his average MPG to 40 miles per gallon.
Here’s a great post with a video of 4 Extreme Ways to Save Money on Gas. The first two methods he gives aren’t extreme at all and in fact I use them myself. The video has a lot of great gas saving tips and information. But steer clear of any shifty or unsafe hypermiling methods – it isn’t worth the small gas mileage improvements you can get, to coast with your engine off or anything like that. High gas prices or not, safety always comes first. There are plenty of safe ways to improve gas mileage.
