Competition Averages

Background: Brucepick brought-up an excellent point:

The baseline and final averages are taken by averaging the MPG value in the GasLog. In this form, a cumulative value of total miles/kilometers, vs. total gallons is not taken.

A cumulative average seems to be more fair and accurate.

Vote:

1) Keep the Current System
2) Implement the total/cumulative average for the Cycle

This is a public vote. Please provide reasoning for your input. Thanks all!

The Commish

Cumulative. Maybe subdivide per quarter so as to see trends by season ?

I know I'm not playing, but if I understand correctly, the current situation: One tank may have only 3 gallons of "extra good behavior" then that tank would have the same weight as a 15 gallon tank of low mpg?

I don't think a rules change in mid "season" is right. with the mileage that some get here they would only get 1 fill and it would get posted near end of cycle.

I was actually pondering this the other day, and meant to bring it up. But was too lazy. I think we should change to the new system as it does seem more fair, shouldn't be that hard to implement either since everything is pulled straight from the site anyhow.

You have no : spring summer fall or winter in Jersey ? Same temps all year 'round ? How about winter / summer fuel formulations ?


"2) Implement the total/cumulative average for the Cycle" <--- this will help balance what I ask about above .

rh77, Rick,

Guess I'm not understanding this very well. How does the proposed new rule differ from the currently posted Version 2.0 rule quoted below??

Excerpt from current Version 2.0 rules:

Calculations:
6. The ?Final Percentage over EPA? is figured by the cumulative, Gaslog-sourced MPG values vs. the vehicle?s EPA FE-Combined (?Cycle-End Cumulative Percentage Over EPA?)

7. A member?s final calculation is the difference between the Baseline and Cycle-End Cumulative? or ?Improvement? (negative numbers reflect a decrease in efficiency).
