You wrote: I don't go to all these extremes (I share the road with other drivers who aren't willing to put up with this) but I am a nempimaniac and am obsessed with maximizing my gas mileage. I coast and try to time lights to avoid coming to a stop whenever possible. I do not speed and stay in the far right lane so I'm out of the way of those who want to. I always try to park so that I don't have to back up. I no longer use drive-thrus or leave my car idling. It's been worth it. I have gotten as high as 54 mpg so far. I'm working hard at trying to beat that.
What kind of car do you drive. 54 mpg is REALLY good.
