    This may not be totally relevant, but it relates to cost savings. I am a regular with a 25 mile a day route and drive an LLV. I did an experiment this week in "hypermiling"...basically, go easy on the accelerator and coast when possible. These things coast really well. I improved my gas mileage by 50 percent! So in a year, at $4 a gallon, I can save the post office around $1,000. Multiply that by 80,000 routes and we could save 80 million bucks. Not to mention 50 percent less carbon emissions. Which since we're apparently getting new gas hogs soon, is a pretty big deal.
