  1. hypermiling means driving smart, but that doesn’t necessarily mean slow. one of the easiest practices that actually increases safety and improves traffic flow for all drivers on the street is to accelerate slowly (take longer to reach top speed) and slow down for red lights early (look ahead). you waste a lot of gas by ‘racing to stop’ at lights and then starting from a dead stop. if you slow down soon enough, you won’t have to stop at all, and either will the people behind you. if you do this you will maintain your speed and if you get the timing right you can even drive faster on less gas.

  3. yeah, you won’t actually get there faster. but if your car never stops moving, you retain kinetic energy which saves gas. plus for some reason lights seem to take less time and trips seem shorter when you aren’t sitting around half the time in a (basically) parked car.
