please delete bogus garage entries

As funny as they are, members here take the top ten lists very seriously. Please only create entries for vehicles you own, and send me a private message to have your existing entries erased.

Also, I think mopeds should go in the motorcycle category, not the gasoline category.

Disclaimer: I put this exact same post in the "New High MPG Vehicles" thread:
***************************
I think that all cars on the top ten list should be cars that are highway capable. A gas powered bike is really cool (I wish I had one, really) but it diminishes the hard work and effort that others have made in makeing that top ten. I feel bad for the 9th and 10th spot that probably take a lot of pride in making that list. We should have a separate category for these alternate modes of transport.
I joined this site to see how I can reasonably and legally increase FE on my car which is driven daily. One of our users has a hangglider (or st least a pic of someone using one), yet I dont see that on the top ten list. It can prob go as fast as some gas powered scooter and MAYBE (I dont know the capabilities of these) fast enough for 50mph highway, but I dont see that user making garage entries for that. Hey, I just remembered. I ran the NYC marathon 3 times in my Nike Air Max, which cost $140. Best money Ive ever spent. I think I'll throw those in the garage and make an entry for those as well. Haha CO, I finally beat you !!!

Hang gliding would require driving up the hill anyway.
I could have listed my real moped which gets about 105mpg, but I didn't out of consideration for those that have true highway vehicles. I'm not even sure motorcycles should be on that list.

I just typed in 'troll car' on google image search, and up it came I remember 14 years ago, when those trolls were all the rage

Ya, I wonder if it puts them there every time they update their gaslogs. I think that must be it.
