Thread: Anybody here speak Hypermile ?

  1. #21
    ^ Aye - to both posts Closest I get to hypermiling has been buying a Honda diesel and sticking to speed-limits. 56-58mpg average per tank when Im not being silly.

    One thing I haven't really got my head round is that after slowing - gentle throttle and easing back up to cruise speed seems to give worse mpg than driving it in a lively enough fashion and getting back up to cruise asap. Might be a feature of the way the 2.2 CDTi lump has been set up ?

    The closest I get to this is when I fill our Renault diesel and try to keep the estimated range over 1000km for as long as possible. On one run I got it over 1100km range which is my record

    The entertainment value in that doesn't last long though, and soon I'm back in the Alfa or Jag making noise for fun!

    This is as close to hyper mileing as I have every got. Needless to say I didn’t get the 1000miles per tank.
    And one time I drove like a leg less nun and managed this
    Longest drive home from work ever.
