Arrow Mid-Cycle Results: Up to 7/30

Hey competitors...

Cycle 3 is almost over -- so here's the "mid-cycle" report

Sooo...

Sorry about the delay in the report. With the new cumulative percentage, the 90-day averages had to be manually calc'd and that takes some time.

Without delay, here we are, as of July 30th:

1. Team OPEC Busters: 6.4%
2. The Right Lane Rollers: 5.5%
3. Team "Leftover Bananas" 4.0%
4. The GasMisers5: 3.9%
5. Team Slow Burn: 2.4%
6. Team Feast & Famine: -3.2%

The spreadsheets are attached...

For the Cycle, this is the last week folks. TCs: ensure your team has 5 members, all of which have a 3 gallon fill reported by this Sunday Aug 12 at Midnight Central Time.

The new calculation method takes the total miles per total gallons.

Best FE!

Commish

Commish
Let me know if you need help with writing a script to "automatically" calculate the information. It seems like you shouldn't have a problem as everything needed is stored in your gaslog DB.

New shortie Kamm back!

Been getting between 31-32.4 mpg steadily for about a week now. I have a couple new tires coming in, should be going on the car Thurs or Fri a.m. They will allow another 4-5 psi so that should be a good thing.

This a.m. when I got close to work I realized that the spare piece of coroplast in my car would probably be perfect for a short version of jwxr7's Kamm back (see http://www.gassavers.org/garage/view/272 ).

So I built it. Sorry, no pics yet. It's short, only 6" from the roof's rear edge but hey, better than nothing. Maybe it will help pull Team Leftover Bananas up into second place!

It took an hour + ten mintes, including time to duck into Home Depot to buy a coroplast sign to get a bit more material. I always have duct tape in the car nowadays! There's a Home Depot and two thrifty gas stations right outside my work entrance, very convenient.

Go Bananas!
Ya gotta watch out for us, we're a slippery bunch!

OPEC Busters, I think this guy is talkin' some smack on this competition. And I ain't gonna take it sittin' down. This weekend I'm puttin' in the new ignition system and wheel bearing, for sure. And the LRR tires will be right behind that.

Bust 'em up, OPEC Busters!

Let's go Slow Burn! Way to go on the best % jump so far James. We are missing Driver #4? ...so we get a zero calculated into our average?

Ya best be quick with that work. Per the Commish's post #11 above, this round ends "Sunday Aug 12 at Midnight Central Time."

Anyway, nothing improper was intended when I said we're a slippery bunch. I just can't resist a pun, ya know? I hope we'll just s - l - i - d - e into the 2nd place slot.
