108 hypermiling / ecodriving tips ...

About these tips ...

Discuss these tips and suggest additional ones in the forum.

Adjusting the nut behind the wheel is arguably the most important
modification a person can make to his or her vehicle. While a modified
vehicle will get better MPG regardless of the driver, driving
techniques have the added advantage of being free and portable - you
can bring your fuel saving skills to any vehicle you drive.

Note that the list on this page describes some techniques that may be
illegal in some areas, and potentially unsafe (or inconsiderate)
depending on the traffic situation where they're used.

So don't be stupid! Make safety your first priority. Use good judgment
and be considerate toward drivers around you. Take care to learn new
techniques in an isolated environment, and incorporate them gradually
into regular use.

Credit: while the techniques in this list have been developed and
promoted by a multitude of efficiency-minded drivers for decades, the
names/labels of some of the tactics were coined and popularized at
CleanMPG.com, which has worked hard to raise the profile of fuel
efficient driving (hypermiling) in recent years.
