I just filled up tonight for my best tank ever. 536.2 miles and 11.80 gallons = 45.44 mpg! I never thought I'd be getting such high mpg out of this car. I guess last weeks fill wasn't a fluke after all.

My gaslog is up to date for accurate data collection.

DRW you really are smoking. It would be interesting to see how many tank records have happened since the begining of this thing.

The Results are In!

It's the moment we've all been waiting for: The FE Team Challenge 28-day winners!

In 3rd place....

__________________________________________________ ___
Team Opec Busters with 11.0%

Notable Contributions:
  • Brock with a 28.2% Improvement (3rd overall)
  • lug_nut turned in 144.7% OVER EPA (2nd best in category) and drove 1213 miles on one tank of fuel!
__________________________________________________ ___

In 2nd Place....

Slow Burn at 13.5%

Notable Performance:
  • DRW...2nd place in both categories of % OVER EPA at 114.4% and Improvement at 37.3%

__________________________________________________ ____

In First Place, Grand Champions of the first 28-Days:

The GasMisers5 at 17.2%!
  • CO ZX2 really roped-in First in both %-Over EPA and %-Improved at 196.2% and 38.9% respectively. Amazing!
  • The consistently solid improvement of other members also contributed to the win

__________________________________________________ _____

To EVERYONE: keep up the great work. I honestly can't believe the improvements, tank records, and consistent attention to squeezing that extra distance out of very little fuel. The FE Team Challenge is just that: challenging. For those who didn't have a good month, there's always the next cycle. Personally, I did a calculation of my own, and trust me, you don't want me on your team -- that's for sure! All of you deserve a round of applause.

The GasMisers5 -- enjoy your reign as current champs. Update your sigs, or celebrate. You deserve it.

But I must warn all of you -- new teams are joining, and they look fierce!

Good luck on the next round!

The Commish

Latest tank - 469.2 miles, 10.864 US gallons, 43.18 (US) MPG - my best ever tank (and my first tank with the basic aero mods on).

Edit - this tank is 96.3% over EPA

I will now see how a 400 mile highway drive does - this will be later on today!

The above tank was for lots of short (10-mile) journeys, with a couple of 0.4 mile journeys per day too.

Latest tank - today - 422 miles, 9.49 US gallons for 44.46MPG - this was highway driving, and is my best ever tank for this, 8% better than my previous best highway tank.

102% over EPA - the first tank to more then double the EPA

SVOboy, if you need a Honda, I can be on your team. My results are not so good, but I drive enough to get the requisite fills, and I have a 4-door in case you need one of those for team honda...

And if you start team honda and exclude me, no prob. I would completely understand.
