I'm an extreme driver!

I saw an article recently that described the way I've always drive as "extreme driving". I try to drive in such a way as to save gas and reduce wear and tear on my car, so it lasts longer.
Eg., I start and stop slowly when possible. I don't do all of the possible techniques Esp. I don't tailgate in order to get some pull from the car in front. I try to keep a safe distance, which also reduces the need for changes in speed. I have a 1996 Geo Metro that I bought in 1999, and I still get more than 30 mpg.

It really is weird that driving sensibly can be considered "extreme driving".
