Has anyone else noticed the #1 MPG and #1 above EPA ratings?

I'm having a hard time believing that a car that is rated at combined 31 MPG is getting 1415 MPG and 4464% above EPA. That's only 70.67 gallons of gas for 100,000 miles. That car is worth a FORTUNE.

Could a moderator please fix this?

(See also the suggested changes to the top 10, which would have prevented this single-entry gaslog from making the list anyway).

they were looking for moderators a while back. not sure if they would pick up an extra one now.

I know that 101mpg is a moderator.

I don't understand what you mean by "not sure if they would pick up an extra one now". Are you just saying that you assume they are full-up on moderators, or is there something else that changed the need for mods? I was on vacation for a bit, so I would like to know if I have missed something important...

Depending on how vBulletin is setup the moderators may or may not be able to change that. It may be that only site administrators can fix the rankings.

I assumed when they said something about needing moderators, that more people said they would do it than they needed.

that is just an assumption though.

it has been a few months ago though but since I have been here so no more than 4 months ago when they were asking about it.
