    When you find yourself fighting the urge to tape down your ears due to an obsession with curbing aerodynamic drag.

    Ok that’s totally me and mine. LOL. Mine actually threatens to drive my car, pedal to the metal, just to mess up my MPG.

    When you get paid in MPGs to listen to more NPR.

    When your wife refuses to discuss your vehicle because she just put $30 in gas in her uplander and it barely went to 1/4 tank.

    when you don't mind filling up as the gas station.

    when you park next to the exit in parking lots.

    that IS a full size bicycle! BUT i do take the front wheel off. fits snug as a bug in a rug. it happens to be a giant single speed. i do also, unscrew one pedal so it does not dig into the carpet. even though i dont have a quick release front end it only takes a few seconds to take the wheel on and off.:)

    Who do you think drags down my mpg? She is getting better though. She used to get 46 mpg on a trip to my daughter's house, but on the last trip she got 53 mpg. So far I am running about 58 mpg on the current tank but was up to a little over 60 mpg.

    when you wonder when Toyota is going to come up with external cameras and internal screens to cut down on the Cd (Coefficient of Drag) by eliminating the side view mirrors so you can get even better gas mileage.

    Thats Awesome. I am getting about the same. Keep going back and forth about adding a removable Kam tail to reduce the drag. But thats a different thread.

    When, even while driving other cars, your right foot has developed a twitch that releases the gas pedal momentarily once you've come up to speed in an effort to kick the car into electric mode.

    When you get into your non hybrid vehicle and look for READY, then realize the ICE will be on all the time!

    When you don't turn on the heater in winter (or air in summer) until the engine is warmed up, so that it will not keep running at red lights.
