We call it hypermiling; others call it eco-driving, which sounds like a contradiction in terms to me, but whatever, it does save fuel- lots of it. Ford recently did a test where they trained 48 drivers in eco-driving techniques (smoother braking and accelerating, monitoring RPMs and moderate speed) and they boosted fuel economy by 24%.
