Arrow Online calculator found to convert "old" EPA ratings to "new" ratings.

I was bumming around the EPA site and I found an online calculator to convert "old" EPA ratings to the "new" ratings. This is immensely helpful for those of you driving 1985 & older vehicles and can't look up new ratings on your vehicle. If you can find the old rating just plug the numbers in here, and get the "new" ratings for your car.

Wow... that is really interesting.

Try some different numbers. At first it looks pretty straightforward, but then try putting in something like 50/50... it pushes out: 41/45... what?

Very nice link. Thanks.

Its nice to know that my guess of subtracting 2 from the old ratings was right... I've fixed the Hooptie's garage entry.

Thumbs up

Another goodie from www.fueleconomy.gov.

Its a PDF file for recording fillups to enter them into the website at a later time. Its geared towards the Govt's website, but it applies just as well here. Has columns for date, mileage, gallons, %highway/%city, notes, etc... I'm going to keep a copy in Rusty so its easier for Dad to record the fillups so I can report them here.
