    Hi All:

    ___I am not sure who visits CleanMPG but in the middle of the night, I have been seeing upwards of 125 + visitors at a given point in time and lately during the day, 100 + on average all day long. The YaHoo spiders sometimes make up 50% of the totals however :( Either way, I think we are beginning to reach more than just your casual observer :) Let us all hope they use what they have found here to improve their own FE and lower emissions all the while extending the time we have to allow the new tech to arrive without as much pain as it will if the masses do not jump on board …

    ___Good Luck, welcome and thanks to all those visitors.

    Just read the Reader's Digest article (excellent btw) and this site is one of the two mentioned. Maybe people are reading it and coming here for more information. Hope so.

    See if you can grab some referers and user-agents from the logs
    and boil down some stats; that will help eliminate a lot of the
    spiders and see how many *humans* are visiting. There are
    apparently a bunch of new bots that recently started up, so
    they're noising up the counts.

    awesome numbers, its one of those feel good things to know that they at least visited, some might not sign up right away, it usually takes just another trip to the pump to trigger a memory of our high mpg #'s and they'll come running back..heh. I'm guilty :p

    I found this site from the Reader's Digest article as well. It was perfect timing for me . . . I had surfed the web using terms like "fuel economy" or "gas savings" and found some good articles with tips (like air up the tires, proper maintenance etc.) but, didn't see this site in those searches.

    I know it's nothing compared to most of you - but, I am pleased that my mpg has increased from 22.3 to 23.5 since joining. I really want to get over 24 (city) so, I will be in the next group buy for the ScanGuage. I have some questions about turning off the engine and coasting . . . I will post those later on the 'help' thread.

    The Readers Digest article is certainly making the rounds. It's good to know that it has brought people like you here to ask questions and get answers.

    As far as your mpg... every decrease in fuel consumption counts. Keep up the good work!

    Thanks for the encouragement. I just figured out that I am getting 19.8 more miles to a tankful of gas than before. That's a little bit more than a 5% increase. At 3.18/gal. - I am saving approx. $3.79 per tank . . . around $4/month . . . almost $50 a year.

    I plan to put my savings toward those little pink, polka-dot high heels I saw at the mall yesterday! :p

    Well, now I'm obligated to crunch numbers. ;)

    Before I started hypermiling, I averaged ~34 MPG (varied from 29 to 39).

    Since then I've driven 4,045 miles per the mileage logs.

    Without hypermiling it would have taken 118.97 gallons. At an average of $3.20 a gallon that's $380.71.

    With hypermiling it took 90.805, or about $290.57 in gas. I've saved what, 90 dollars in three months? I don't even count the first month as true hypermiling because I did so poorly.

    I'm going to say I'm saving an average of $50 a month in gas over "driving like a normal human". That's assuming prices don't rise and my MPG never increases. I think I'll keep hypermiling. :D

    yeahpp, readers digest for me.... I don't even read it regularly. I wouldn't be surprised if the number of members is about to suddenly skyrocket. Word is getting out, gas is still going up, people are still getting crappy mileage. If anyone hears they can save gas now-a-days with little more than some driving habbit changes more than likely they'll at least try it.
