Hypermiling Test

I will admit that I don't enjoy $4 a gallon gas. In fact it makes me a little crazy at times. When you stop and add it up, it ain't cheap to drive anymore. I just filled up my BMW 328ci and it cost me over $70. It is a 5 speed and gets what I would call fairly respectable mileage at 25mpg. Which for a BMW I think is quite high. I have been testing out a new hypermiling strategy and I got 27.5 mpg using hypermiling strategies. That's an extra 40 miles a tank. I'll take it. Quite honestly it was no big deal. I just drove a little slower and took my foot off the gas when I see a red light coming. It works. Give it a try and let me know how you do. Just be careful.

What is hypermiling?
