Hypermiling And Saving Gas

March 23, 2012 by staff 

Hypermiling And Saving Gas, The last time I filled up the tank of our Dodge Caravan, the total was $64.78. That hurt. But my husband and I can’t afford to spend $20,000 or more on a hybrid car just to save on gas (a very American equation!). Instead, I decided to look into “hypermiling.”

Hypermiling is a collection of hotly debated driving techniques that advocates swear can get you 40, 50, maybe even 90 miles per gallon. Although some hypermilers may go to extremes to get mileage like that, most practice a few simple techniques for smart driving.

“There really isn’t one thing that’s going to increase your fuel economy by 25%,” says John Flory, an experienced hypermiler whose mileage runs about 35 to 40 mpg in his Subaru and about 100 mpg in his Honda Insight, a tiny gas-electric hybrid. “It’s the cumulative effect of taking lots of smaller steps.”
