Thumbs up GS members with "personal bests" on their latest fill-ups. Woo hoo!

Here's a list of GS members whose latest fill-up was a personal best. The info comes from the gas logs of members who:
  1. have more than 1 fill-up for their vehicle
  2. filled up at least once in the last 90 days
Thanks to php uber-wrangler and all around good guy, Matt (friendly GS overlord) for providing the info for this list.

If you're not on the list and should be, post a message in this thread. If there's something notable about your personal best, share it here - like how the heck did you do it??

If you do a PB fill-up before this list gets updated again, come on back and let us know!

Way to go everyone!

I'd also like to send out a thank you to everyone who browsed for users best tanks.

Unfortunately, I have just refilled my car to a shockingly low mpg I have also added a PCV catch can, small underbody thing, and changed out my undersized, faulty injector. I can't wait to see how good this next tank is

::EDIT:: accidently quoted first post

Great idea, Metro.

Congrats to all on your list for their best tanks ever. It's not easy.

That's funny. Ironically, the timing for this thread makes it easy for me to keep it up to date. As the weather gets nastier, fewer and fewer people will be posting "personal bests" (myself included)

Wahoo!! new personal best, I'm very shocked at the numbers i got considering I was running on pure E-85!!!

26.10 MPG on the highway! E.P.A. average for 85-89 lincoln town cars is only 25 MPG highway using gasoline!!! freaking amazing!

(Note: first tank with his SG - we've seen that happen before! FE Instrumentation = good.)

BioThomas ... Jetta TDI A5 ... 49.72 ... 11/18/2006
(Oh so close to that magic 50 mark! Also, 2 tanks in a row appearing on the personal best list.)

Nice work, z. I see a few around locally and think of the time I tried out a 1st gen version back in the day. I didn't know much at the time about how to eke the most MPG out of the system. Instead I just drove as much as possible without starting the ICE and thought that was the coolest thing
