    I viewed the podcasts last night and really enjoyed them. I found them full of good information that I can use. I have a FFH and really enjoy the car. I want to continue to improve my mpg. Have you thought of videoing one of your clinics on the FFH and posting them here as a podcast? I am eager to learn more about hypermiling the FFH on both city and highway settings. It could really help you give others greater access to your teaching!

    Some specific questions about the FFH?
    In the empower mode of the Smartgauge, do you know the corresponding absolute units of the marks on the accessory and main power gauges? I suspect that they are not equal? Does the SGII tell you this?

    Is there a way to force an ICE off traveling above 50 mph going down hill? In neutral it seems to suck battery power, but still keeps the ICE running?

    What are the best techniques to use for hypermiling on long intersate driving with the FFH?
