Re: Beating the EPA - The Why’s and How to Hypermile

Thanks from a newbie for this article and this site in general. One question:

Does the "Prius II SHM" method still apply to the 2010 Prius (3rd Gen)? And if so, are we still shooting for the same numbers on the scangauge?

Thanks,
EZ

Re: Beating the EPA - The Why’s and How to Hypermile

Hi Ezanker:

Good question and hopefully the following will answer your questions succinctly

2010 Prius-III_P&G,_SHM and_WS_FE techniques rehashed, defined and refined

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Delond2, I cannot wait to drive the 2011 Ford Explorer with the 2.0L EcoBoost myself as I suspect it may be a real winner vs. the std. 3.5L.

Good Luck

Wayne

Re: Beating the EPA - The Why’s and How to Hypermile

XCEL....
My wife is working half time, so she can be mom as much as possible on the side. I can have the small car to commute but she will need the kiddo mover. My wife is a big Ford Explorer fan and she is liking the 2011 explorers so far. It would probably be about 3-4 yrs before she would get a new car/suv, but if reliability holds up, I would push for the explorer to have the 4-cylinder turbo (1/2 the size of the 4.0L V6, power is better, better efficiency).

Re: Beating the EPA - The Why’s and How to Hypermile

After reading the article on hypermile I am stuck at 47 mpg for a yaris m5spd. Can anyone offer anymore suggestions to improve mpg. I have trying to shift at lower rpm.
When I get up to 2,000 rpm, I shift into next gear

Smile Re: Beating the EPA - The Why’s and How to Hypermile

My car is a manual 5 speed. Just driving a gear lower at 30 or 40 mph gives me another 10 mpg. For example Driving 40 mph in 4th gear was 54 mpg and now driving 40 mph in 5th gear (1500 rpm) is 65 mpg. Going up a steep hill would require shifting from 5th to 4th gear .

Re: Beating the EPA - The Why’s and How to Hypermile

'13 Yaris EPA 30/37/33 with M5, so I'd say 47 (142% x 33 combined) is a great start.

Low rpm, high load is usually the right path.

You could start your own thread and lay out your driving patterns and current techniques.

We do have some here who meet or beat 200% of epa with the stick, using advanced techniques in favorable conditions. That won't work for all of us.
