I "hypermiled" a couple years ago when my engine was stock. Only went 100km/h on the highway and drafted trucks some times. I averaged 5.3L/100km

Now I actually have fun when I drive and enjoy it and on summer gas I average 5.8-6.0L/100km
That's aftermarket flow bolt ons

The stuff I remember in addition to drafting are things like never driving over 55 mph, coasting in gear down any hill/grade to take advantage of DFCO, driving as if your car doesn't have brakes, never driving with the AC on, etc.

They lost me at never driving over 55.

I have a Ford Expedition that gets crap mileage under 55, still crap at 55 to 70, and only gets good if going 80 MPH. Interesting what gear ratios and tire sizes will do I guess.

A quick update here:

I just did freeway driving and got 36 MPG no problem. So the fact that I get a measly 22-23 MPG in city is pretty poor (should be north of 27). Seems to me this thing does not know how to idle, sucks way too much gas at idle. Anyone else's experience agree?

Also note: the onboard computer on this is pretty darn accurate (checked it against my own calculation).

I usually average 30-38 mpg mixed depending on how much city or highway I drive. I replaced the spark plugs, pcv valve, air filter, changed transmission fluid and cleaned the MAF. I drive manual and shift at around 2-2.5k and use DFCO at every opportunity.

I have the same experience as you and would be getting much worse mileage if I didn't use hypermiling techniques. I seriously have no idea how some people here can claim 60+ mpg. I'm finding it near impossible to break 40mpg. The only time I think I ever slightly broke 40mpg was during a 400 mile all freeway trip.

I don't recall seeing anyone ever claim 60+ mpg. I've seen extreme hyper miler's get 46-48 mpg, with 50 mpg being somewhat of a holy grail.
