Unexpectedly good results
I filled my third tank since starting a firm effort to hypermile. I just calculated this tanks mpg at 39.3- the tank before that was 38.4, and the first tank was 38.5. 39.3 seems really good when I thought my efforts on this tank would only net 36ish at best because of the use of A/C and a day trip overs hills. I think the mpg increase must have come from habituating good driving habits during the two previous tanks. Maybe I could reach 44 mpg during August as long as it doesn't get too hot to go without A/C.
I've been reading Consumer reports and Motor Trend recently and it's crazy how low the rate the average mpg for their test cars. I feel more relaxed and less stressed after hypermiling for a few weeks. I wonder how hypermiling could effect society if more people tried to do it.
What are the limits of my 2011 Hyundai Accent GLS 4 door automatic?
