Hypermiling: Hack Your Mileage

hypermiler_20070306.jpg
There’s a great article at Mother Jones which profiles Wayne Gerdes, a mileage hacker who’s able to get 59MPG in a stock Honda Accord. There are a number of driving hacks which allow hypermilers to increase their milage, ranging from over-inflating tires to extreme drafting behind large vehicles. It’s incredible, really, to think that by changing your driving habits, you can get better mileage in a standard car than is typically advertised for a hybrid!
