PS - do you take PayPal
Just take the money and invest it in the Forkenswift. That good enough for me

At any rate, other members may encounter the same problem with the consumption -- just thinking out loud.

Hey Metro knew the rules when he started. The responsible and environmentally right thing to do is get in his car and just drive. That's what GS is about right

I really didn't think the min fill would be a problem with daily drivers when the weather warmed up but that's a good thing. Hard to believe that you don't drive 240 miles in a month when there's not ice everywhere. I guess we do need to do some kinda of weighted scale on mileage althought it looks like it would be complicated. I don't want to do away with the min fill for now, althought I'm fine with it going away if the group is, because it might not be that common until winter sets in but lets open it up for discussion because when winter rolls around it will probably be more of a factor.

Exclamation The Commish

The Team Challenge has become just that, quite a challenge. Metro and I have decided that it would be better to have a 3rd party that was not involved in the competition to be the "Commissioners of the Team Challenge" RH77 has graciously offered to help and will be more than capable of handling any and all problems that arise.

He will have final authority on what finally get ironed out and will be in charge of the scoring. So thanks to Rick for stepping up to the plate. Rick will be throwing out suggestions so now's the time to speak up so we can get this in a workable fashion that everyone can live with.

Thanks RH77 the Commish

RH77,
Not to put you on the spot but can you work up a tally with the info listed with weighted scale and the current way we're doing it? Just to see what kinda of differences we're talking about. It might be close enough to not worry about dealing with the sliding scale.

RH77-

Thanks for your help.

Honestly, it has been fun regardless of the outcome. It is great to watch the insane mpg numbers and creative ideas get shared. It has been a great motivator for me to mod the car and driver style.

PS- how much does an extra 2 MPG cost?

Same here, it more of a fun thing for me and pushes me to drive for mpg the whole time rather then once in a while I am at 700+ miles and still above 1/4 tank

No Problem -- I can work something-up tonight.

Thanks MetroMPG and Zpiloto for the opportunity to act as Commissioner.

All -- If you have concerns, please do not hesistate to make suggestions in forums or by PM -- whichever you're most comfortable with.

That would be up to an auction bid at EBay -- it's about competition, right?

In order to calculate the weighted adjustments, I believe I'll need a total of the number of miles driven for each driver.

As I look at it on paper, perhaps the percentage of miles driven can be applied to the MPG to make an "Adjusted MPG" figure to make the final calculation. Would that be sufficient to weight the amount of miles contributed per driver to increase/decrease the final number proportionately?

Metro just noticed you filled on the 03-21 so your good for the 28 day cycle. Although it's probably not as good as what your SG tank average is.
