What a cool idea! I'd be in if there was any point for me. But between a 48 mile round-trip to what's left of my job (with no bus or rail alternative) plus 200 to 300 miles per week running routes for my new business, I'm guaranteed to need a minimum of a tank a week, and there's no way around it.

Unless someone wants to pay our mortgage and other bills so I don't have to work? Anyone? Buehler?

I'll definitely enjoy being a spectator, though.

Rick

I'll join the fun. Wed. it is. Who else want to play. DW you probably need to start a separate thread Wed for folks to post their comments as they explore the art of conservation.

OK I'm in.
Maybe come in dead last due to small tank and getting about 27 mpg highway. But I'm in anyway. (still learning the art of conversation)

If you're in we all win. The commute makes the FE anyway. I just try to use less gas this week then last so that at the end of the year my consumption is less then previous year. If everyone tried that it would be surprising how much petro as a nation we could save. So if you're in we all win no matter what the score card reads. Who else is up for he challenge?

I'm interested. Too bad we all didn't live in the same area. If we did we could tape off everyone's gas caps/fuel doors and have someone sign it so we know if someone filled up. (I stole that idea from Sport Compact Car magazine's Ultimate Street Car Challenge's fuel economy test) I think i'm still gonna tape my fuel door. It'll be a constant reminder everytime I'm walking up to my car.

Having the ForkenSwift probably disqualifies me.
