Still Hypermiling

Well, hot damn! Hypermiling efforts this week squeezed out 42.09 mpg! I drove 9 days between fill ups, some highway, some not, and traveled 424 miles. I achieved 43 mpg twice last year, and with one tank of gold a few weeks ago that surpassed 46 mpg. To be fair though, that was all highway on my way home from New York. My last 6 fill ups average 41.63 mpg.

Not a big deal, considering some non-hybrid users are getting between 50 and 60 mpg, but seeing my efforts bear fruit make me happy.

I still haven’t changed my oil to the lighter grade nor have I checked my tire’s psi gauge. So I may have a little more room for improvement.
