Practice, cunning, attention to detail, and mods!

Winning against entropy.

The term seems to have originated here. Greenhybrid defines it as someone that exceeds EPA, but Insighters tend to have a tougher yardstick as many exceed EPA. ;)

Billy is hypermiler royalty, so I consider his definition as law. :D
A rising star?

That works out to about 64 miles to the US gallon. If your mileage is still rising that's a good sign. Mine rose rapidly the first year peaking around 74. Winter came and did me in. :cry: I seem to have maxed out at 72. Never mind I'm designing some cool mods that should get the average rising again. :D

Mileage depends a lot on trip length, road and weather conditions too. Those with extreme mileage tend to travel long straght distances non stop.
