Well, I just couldn't resist.
After lurking and reading and digesting all the tricks of the hyper-miler trade that you gents (and ladies) have documented here........
I must admit that I placed a couple of restrictions on myself before I even considered participating:
1. I will NOT make anyone in a vehicle behind me participate unwillingly in my pursuit of joining this club.
2. I will NOT be concerned with accerlerating from a dead stop to the posted speed limit in EV mode. I just do not want to be a member that bad.
3. I will NOT travel below the posted speed limit. (Although if coasting can extend my EV and there is nobody behind me, I will include this technique in my strategy)
I also am willing to admit that on cool mornings, (70's) I did indeed choose to roll down the windows and benefit from the added efficiency of no AC. But I am on the coast of Texas. In July. There are few hours of the day that fall within that temperature range.
Anyways, it turns out is was almost childs play for this magic little chariot. What a delight it is turning out to be.
One other addmission is that I am not much of a carbon footprint concious fella. So I don't want to be a hypocrate. I am enjoying this simply because I am facinated and impressed with what we are, as a species, capable of achieving. Seems like nowadays, every time I go to sleep they invent something amazing. I wake to a new world. Simply fascinating.
