For all of you esteemed veteran hypermilers on here, what I am about to say may be the hypermiling equivalent of discovering lint in one's bellybutton for the first time and marveling at this new development as if the world has never heard of such a thing. But I hope some input from the experts will allow us hypermiling Noobs to benefit. I live in a somewhat hilly suburban area. On my commute to work, I use this to my advantage, coasting in neutral on my way down some long descending hills. Yes, I do have to employ DWL techniques after coasting down an initial hill and making an ascent towards the crest of the next hill, but overall the hills go from big to small such that taking this route to work yields a net MPG advantage due to the coasting opportunities. However, I have found that if I take this same path home, I am doing more climbing than coasting and MPG suffers. I seem to have found a different path for the commute home that offers a ONE WAY (heading home) net advantage to taking that route home. More traffic lights (which are handled by shutting of the ICE), but a more gradual ascent to the elevation of my home. I even find that on the gradual upward climbs, I am able to use what I have heard described as "hang time" technique, where I get into high gear, over 40 MPH and then very precisely ease my foot off the accelerator ever so slightly. My instantaneous MPG readout shows 70mpg-80mpg during this manuever and I am still being propelled forward in a lean burn state (even while slightly climbing) without losing speed very quickly. Bottom line, yesterday I achieved my best commute stats to date as follows: My car has EPA estimate of 27City / 35Hwy. I was able to achieve a round trip commute (all city) of 11.8 miles with a MPG average of 45.4 MPG. I still plan on wringing more out of it, but i am happy with the progress so far.
