Re: Found a 16% shorter commute route: Can't lose!
Looks like it works! I did get my 1.5mi FAS as planned, (just barely...got down to 25mph at one point but nobody was behind), and best-ever FE of 40.9mpg (previous best: 39.3mpg). That puts me at 42.7mpg for the day, which is also the best yet.
The only catch was an encounter with Captain Testosterone, which was probably the worst road rage experience I've had yet. Long story short it wasn't really even hypermiling related, this guy was just out to make somebody's life miserable. (It worked...that stuff really rattles me.)
Either way I think we have a keeper!
