Re: Its Lonely at the Top

The place where he is now is lonely indeed - I can't even dream of getting close to his results...

I hope those results continue. His gaslog shows just one entry. It'll be a long wait to see what he gets on the next fillup since he covered over 600 miles on the first tank.

Re: Its Lonely at the Top

I'd be interested to know how often his vehicle travels above 40 mph or 64 km/h.

Rarely, and not for long periods, I think.

(And I'd like to see a more detailed log too!)

Re: Its Lonely at the Top

Cat and Alvaro make good points, it would be good to know how relevant the speeds Daniel M travels at. If it can't keep with traffic and is too slow, its kind of a useless execise, like the 10000 mpg experiment that don't go over 15 mph and can't carrry anything.

Re: Its Lonely at the Top

Everything depends on the environment, sometimes you don't even have to keep up with the traffic, because that's almost non-existent On winter mornings I could easily do 50-60km/h (31-37mph) along the road 811 (in Hungary), because at 6am the best unit to measure following distance was km. And I had to go that slow because it was already cold enough on the bike without going faster

Anyway, if I remember well, he always mentioned city riding, and not of the fast kind.

Re: Its Lonely at the Top

Daniel M posted a few a times after he first joined, I didn't realize he only had one tankfill . Too bad, I guess he's just drop off the list due to inactivity. This is why I have great respect for veteran hypermilers (like Cat, Alvaro, Basjoos, PalePal and other frequent posters ) that list every tankfill in their garage so that you can see their progress, consistency, and info on what happened that tankfill.

Re: Its Lonely at the Top

He should drop off the list once he's gone 90 days without a fillup.
