    ...you dread the first couple of miles, knowing your trip mpg is going to take a hit while the engine is warming up.

    You drive slower, but get there at the same time.

    You often mistake your FCD for your speed.

    ....Wish your car had fold-down pedals at times, and almost figure a way in your mind how to do it for both you and your passengers

    …you drive by your house twice on the way home, hoping the gauge will jump from 58.9 to 60.3 before you put it in the garage for the night.

    You "guys" are so harsh. I honestly don't think they deserve all the hate.

    You know you're a hypermiler if you have to turn back to get something forgotten, and fume that traffic is going to be worse and hurt your FE

    …you leave the air off, even though it's close to 90 degrees because you don't want to spoil a great tank.

    You hate short trips, knowing the FE hit while the engine and cataylic converter is warming up will be greater than any improvments you might make the rest of the trip.

    ...you get to within 6 inches of the bumper of the car that just pulled out in front of you while you were "N" coasting cuz you just don't want to hit the brakes...:D

    You cuss when you realize that the ICE is still running despite
    trying to glide in stage 4, because the secondary cooling loop
    has just opened and it's trying to heat whatever was left in the
    thermos bottle too. You threaten your prius that it better get
    over that pronto, or you're going to hit the EV button.
