Conservative driving will help you save lots of gas, and most likely can prevent car accidents. Hypermiling on the other hand seems dangerous.

Following these conservative driving tips I get +8mpg in my mazda 3:
  • Don't tailgate.
  • Accelerate slowly.
  • Obey the speed limits.
  • Change your driving habits so that you rarely use the brakes.
  • Take advantage of hills when going downhill.
  • Pay attention to driving conditions. Take the foot off the gas when you notice traffic slowing down.
Of course I stick to the right lanes on the highway and let those who want to waste gas go ahead. Often I will pass the speeders several minutes later when traffic slows to a crawl.
