1,000 Hypermiles on a Single Tank of Gas

Posted in GETV Episode by ekai on the May 5th, 2009

Is it really possible to get over 1,000 miles out of single tank of gas? If you are a “hypermiler”, you know this to be true. This week we’re doing something a little different here at GETV. Our new field contributor Scott Stead in Washington, DC, has been following the Ford 1000 Mile Challenge. Scott gets the lowdown on hypermiling from the original hypermiler himself Wayne Gerdes, and NASCAR racer Carl Edwards, who is no slacker for a challenge. Extreme gas mileage using some fairly ordinary driving optimization tricks is something we can all get behind.
