The New York classic Japanese mission stood out as a tough one. But the difficulty didn't go up evenly as I went through the list. Some were almost freebies, others not so much.

I'm down to a 16.x second difference in the last mission. Yay for OCD!

Enough for tonite.

We should devise some kind of GT4 Prius driving FE competition.

Crud. Just checked, and the Prius only shows instant FE on the display, so not much good for doing a MPG challenge.

But I'm down to 13 seconds behind the lead car in the last mission

No, I was wrong. We can do this.

On the right of the Prius display, there's fuel used (I think). In metric it shows "cc". In imperial it shows "gal.".

So we just need to come up with a formula that rewards a combination of lowest time & lowest total fuel use. Easiest might be to multiply time against fuel used.

NICE!!!!

i think we should do 20 laps in the prius and see whos tank is the most full. time is irrelevant if we are measuring fuel economy.

my strategy: no power mods, suspension, and top gear driving with economy tires just to maintain speed, with, of course, a fresh oil change.
