This sounds like fun. Can I join? I'm not offended if not selected , I would use the caprice, thats the only car I am driving now. The Ford ZX2 I am trying to sell for three weeks now, so it is being parked.

Question: should I use my chassis EPA ratings, or the motor? The motor would be the equivalent to a 1989 or 1990 Police-Caprice, because those are still the box body, with a TBI engine.

I think you use the original configurations. SVO is that what we came up with when folks started modding their cars way back when?

I think using the original EPA adjusted for 2008 values would be the logical solution as another engine is simply a bigger modification to the car. Just like an air dam or something That's what the logic in my head says anyway.

Of course I couldn't find any EPA numbers on my car, I just guessed .

Caprice, I would love to have you on the team. That would put this team as having 3 tanks made before 1989 .

Looks like everything is in line. Is everyone okay with "Right Lane Rollers" as the team name? If not, speak up now! I will submit the team to the commish when we verify the team name is acceptable.

"Right Lane Rollers" is (are?) very cool.

I realized I was reporting Combined incorrectly. Originally for some reason I hadn't seen that Combined EPA is shown for my car via the link posted.

I'd be interested in Joining
2002 Acura RSX AUTO - 2 Dr
I just double checked the link. Old EPA MPG 24 city, 33 hwy, 27 combined
New is 21 city, 30 hwy, 24 combined . And I am now confused, which one are we supposed to enter in our garage? If its the new, I think i'm now a hypermiler, although that seems to easy.

Cant figure out what the Mason Dixon line, is that some sort of statistic??
