my new hypermiling technique is unstoppable

That's only ten miles in to a new tank though. Hope to be able to keep this up for another 600ish miles. Computer currently says 681 miles remaining from 35 litres of diesel!*

* yes, I know. Should be km/litre or I should measure my tank in gallons. Driving is one place I get my units all messed up.

Awesome! I enjoyed driving a Nissan Altima last year because it had a little bar graph on the display that told you how economical your driving was.

You must be hell to be stuck behind on the road : )

I get that without trying. :)

There's no way I'm going to average anything this good over a full tank's worth of driving. It's looking like high 60s right now, but I've still got more than half a tank to go.

Dinky diesel Panda ftw!

Crickson - I try not to be. I'll drive below the speed limit and accelerate very slowly if there's no-one behind me, but annoying people is no good.

Awesome. I had a golf bluemotion on holiday, and it managed 680 miles on one tank. It did feel very detuned though, especially compared with my normal runabout; but then again, my best mileage in the Scooby is 37, and on a track I get around 6 :-)
