Does Hypermiling Really Work?

What is Hypermiling?

Hypermiling {hi-per-mile-ing} is a series of driving techniques where driving enthusiasts try to beat the manufacturers stated MPG.

Hypermilers claim they can get up to 40% more mileage out of their cars.

What techniques do they use?


Driving closely behind a larger vehicle to take advantage of their slipstream.


When travelling downhill, put it in neutral and turn the engine off.

No brakes

Instead of constantly stopping and restarting at junctions –

anticipate the traffic ahead – and adjust your speed so you don’t have to stop

What the experts say:

Hypermiling works in theory but the real world application is very dangerous and could easily lead to accidents.
