Insight FE record attempt: good luck Dan! (krousdb)

For those of you who may not follow the discussion at CleanMPG, a formidable group of dedicated hypermilers including Dan (krousdb) is assembling in Kansas this week and weekend to take part in a marathon feat of driving in a Honda Insight 5M that will surely go down in the record books.

http://www.cleanmpg.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2025

Good luck to Dan and everybody involved! (Bring some good driving music - you'll need it!)

I can't wait to see how far past 100mpg they will go.

Whoops, right you are Rick. Some of the participants may have been coming in via Wichita. Thus my confusion.

Far enough from me as to be kind of moot, anyway.

No big deal, just a clarification. I get Manitoba and Saskatchewan mixed up all the time too. So I suppose I've missed most of this? I'm stuck in Little Rock and Tupelo, MS until Friday.

We should make a pool! I'm hoping ~150mpg@40mph. I suppose they could pulse lower, but as the average speed approaches 20mph it becomes purely academic, which a record is I suppose. Anyway, pool?

Im flying into Witchita Friday evening and will be driving Saturday and Sunday. 150+ MPG is the target as long as the winds don't get too bad. Anyone near is encouraged to stop by. The hotel is on tonkawa.

Sweet! I bet I could make it down Sunday (wedding reception Saturday night ). I'll have to run it by the Department of Time Management "Wife".
