Hello folks! I've been lurking around the forums reading up on techniques here for a little while.. and have found the information here to be very useful. I just recently traded in my 2006 Scion tC, of which with its age and wear.. along with whatever safe hypermiling techniques I could implement... it was still not friendly on my wallet with the 34mpg I could push out of it. Even bumping up to the much better 6-speed 2011 tC which I occasionally borrowed from a friend.. I had many people gasp in awe as I could easily push 36-40mpg barrier.. well over the EPA of 26mpg (combined).. while only just doing basic techniques. I would say I've been hypermiling for a while.. doing what I can too accommodate my driving lifestyle. Driving close to, if not over 30K miles/yr.. my bank account and lack of income needed to find better ways to not to throw away gas. I've always eyeballed diesel vehicles as it would certainly fit my driving better, but alas, I could not find anything that would fit my budget. When the Prius C was released only last month.. I took a look at the MSRP, and was pretty much sold. I figured I'd finally register on the forums to introduce myself, hoping to meet other knowledgeable people to help continue learning.. and to improve my techniques which now I pretty much have to learn how to drive all over again with this new vehicle. and lol.. the name's Trung, btw.
