I'm hoping to enter the battle with my next tank, prolly on the % over side of things before anything else. I ought to be a good 35-40% over epa, I think, at least, we'll see, I dunno, I suck.

basjoos is slowly pulling away. I'm sure after another month Dan and Darin will be going for the #2 position.

Hopefully I move up 5 positions after a month.

Where did you get your EPA ratings? My car is almost the same as yours but my EPA ratings are 10 mpg more? I think one of us is wrong (and hope it is mine)

www.fueleconomy.gov,

Let us not forget that my car is, by make, an automatic CRX DX, though in a week or so it'll be almost equivalent to a manual CRX HF in drivetrain, Mwahaha.

I would be willing to bet 99.9% of people can't. I am in the same boat. I yesterday I forgot to coast one of my best spots because my head was in la la land.

True about the driving - and that's a huge part of most of these guys that get the exceptional mileage.

Something that I've found that helps me - landmarks. I've found some on all the significant coasting spots and used them for about 2 weeks. If I'm in la la land and pass it, I think "hrm, that sign....AH engine off!!!". Picked that up from krousdb after I read about some of his observations about coasting speed. Also, since I don't have any other indication about engine off distance, it helps me keep track of what % of my tank was spent coasting (mileage).

This landmark helper seems to have steadied my results (in otherwise similar conditions). I'm hoping to use this to take out variability as I start to test aero mods.

My $.02

My mpg will probally drop with all these 2mile trips to work and back. But I do get a 1mile codfish on the way back if i roll through a stop sign.
