Be Kind to SUVs

Today's hypermiling tip is more of an "act locally, think globally" type of idea.  It's simple - when you see a big honkin' SUV waiting to turn out into traffic, by all means slow down and let them out!  While they're idling, they're guzzling valuable gas.  So help them out by getting them back on their way faster.  I know it's tempting to laugh at their misery and coast on by, but think about the big picture.  By helping them get to where they're going faster, they're using less gas.  Using less gas will help lower demand and maybe lower prices.  Every bit helps!
