Hyper-milers are crazy

Wayne Gerdes is a hypermiler from Madison, Wisconson. He’s the guy all the regular drivers in the world hate with a passion. Yup, that’s him crawling away from the stoplight at a painfully slow pace. Yup, that’s him going 50 mpg on the highway when the speed limit is 65, and traffic is flowing at 75. Yup, that’s him taking very sharp, 25 mph turns at 51 mph

Wait a minute, what? Apparently part of hypermiling is taking turns waaaaaay too fast, so you don’t lose momentum. Thanks, but I like not throwing up while I’m driving. Link.
