What make one a hypermiler?
Unless you live close enough to work to walk or bike, or have good transit. That's my situation, and as result, my Insight, Effie, is spoiled to the point where she doesn't like to come out of the garage at all unless I promise her a good reasonably long hypermiling run, but I also make her do ordinary driving like hauling recycling, or rushing to an airport or meeting when I haven't allowed enough time for her to show what she can really do.JimmyHiggins said:Of course, if you live close to work, being a hyper-miler is rather difficult.
Actually, for the first few days, while my Insight was in the dealership as the workers played operation on it (remove the whacky commutation sensor), I was cycling to the office. The funny thing was that it took about 5 to 6 minutes longer to get to the office on bike than car. Not that big of a difference. Of course, going up that big hill, climbing out of the valley is a bit rough, though not as bad as going down it with all that traffic... they really need a bike lane on that road.chrs said:Unless you live close enough to work to walk or bike, or have good transit.
