Well, here goes. Not sure how I will be received on here, but i'm gonna take a chance and stick my neck out, and see what happens. I've been "HyperMiling" since long before anyone coined a phrase for it. Admittedly I'm a former HotRodder, and backyard mechanic. Most of my vehicles over my lifetime were big V-8's, think Ford 460's etc. and Big Cars, Mustangs, Lincolns Etc. I've always been an automotive enthusiast, and honestly every job I've ever had that I cared about involved driving. I remember as a teenager, just cruisin around for hours on end as hobby, and to relax. To make a long story short, My wife and I own a small Transport company, and have since 2001 (probably the worst year to start such a venture, but it was before 9/11) Sometimes I actually feel guilty because my career, ( don't even want to think of my carbon footprint ) and the clients that we serve, are so non-eco-friendly. Not Only do I use tons of fuel trucking across 48 states, but what I move uses more fuel in a weekend than probably all of the vehicles on this site combined. Its not uncommon for one of my clients to spend 3 or 4 thousand dollars on a weekend just in fuel. Unfortuantely I haven't thought of a new occupation yet that will cover my housepayment etc, but I'm still looking, as I'm not sure there will be any crude oil reliant jobs to be had in the near future. Besides what its doing to the enviroment. I guess here is where I should tell you that I drive a 2005 Dodge Ram 3500, Crew Cab, Dually, 5.9 Cummins Turbo Diesel, Manual 6 speed, weighs in at about 8000 lbs. I'll go into the modifactions etc later in another post, if I'm not booted out of here for choice of vehicles, .... Well I began realizing that If I slowed down, and implemented a few other techniques, I was not only saving wear and tear on the truck, which of course I own, and have to repair myself, but I was also saving money on fuel, and not extending my travels times that greatly. Also began to realize how much less stress I felt than when I was barreling down the road trying to psychicly PUSH the slower moving vehicles out of the way. So here I am, years later, glad that I found some like-minded individuals to interact with, but not too sure that I will be welcomed. I'm definately not received well alot of the times on the freeway, but I absolutely make staying out of others way, my priority, along with safety of my cargo. It started out just trying to save money on fuel, then it became a personal challenge, watching the EFD ( i think you called it, Electronic Fuel device ) Face it, there's only so many times you can drive from Michigan to Califonia before you've seen most of what there is to see on the freeway, and the trip gets long and boring, so this became another way to add interest and a fresh perspective on many long, lonely hours of driving. You'd be surprised at the number of profesional drivers (semi-truck) that actually think along these same lines. You have to, when you only get about 5 mpg. But of course you've still got the idiots that want to go out there and do 100, just because they can. Currently I can get about 36 mpg when I'm bobtail (NO LOAD IN TOW) and about 22 mpg with a full load. I've got some modifications done to the truck, and am looking to add one or two more, just to cool my exhaust gas temperatures, and increase mileage. So, enough for my introduction, I'll just leave it at that, and see what happens. Great job on the site by the way.
