One of our readers was recently featured in a series of videos on “hypermilers” — folks who take energy-efficient driving to a level most of us never dreamed of.
Our reader, Neil Blanchard, is featured in this first video. His vehicle is decked out with all sorts of improvements to increase its mileage per gallon. In total, he gets about 50 mpg, 20 more than his vehicle’s EPA rating of 30 mpg. The video also features a man who has driven his car for over 1,000,000 miles.
This next video features a guy who runs his BMW on propane, a Nissan Leaf driver (Neil’s sister), an efficient EV Neil is working on, and the Fisker Karma:
In this one, Hobbit, Neil, and Chang show us more hypermiling:
