Boo Hoo. EPA doesn't rate trucks over 1/2 ton. The Blue Beast will never be in the "over EPA" category. Even if it got 40 mpg.

My grandparents used to live in Port Orange (Just south of Daytona). I currently have an uncle, and one of my father's cousins live there now. I also have a great uncle that lives in Lake Panasofkee (sp?), but we rarely get a chance to see him. I haven't been down there in about 7 years. I have a few friends that live in the Orlando area, and I think one friend is currently in Tampa. I have no plans on driving to Tampa, but I may try to meet up with some friends somewhere around Orlando, which is about an hour's drive from my grandparent's old house (which is where I'd be staying).

I keep slipping lower and lower on this list....

Top 25, (er, actually 15...maybe I'll add the other 10 if I get ambitious...) as of 9/19, filtered for recency (entry to gaslog within the past two weeks) and frequency (at least 10 entries)

1. The Metro Experience -- jwxr7 --78.02 MPG(US)
2. Red Jelly Bean -- minic6 -- 61.89 MPG(US)
3. 92 VX -- Rancho VX -- 61.62 MPG(US)
4. R.I.D.E. -- R.I.D.E. 57.99 MPG(US)
5. 99metro -- 99metro -- 56.8 MPG
6. '95 Civic DX hatchback -- cems70 -- 56.49 MPG
7. Piglet II -- iwilltry -- 54.57 MPG
8. The_Silver_Yaris -- Roadrunner -- 53.24 MPG
9. Ford Festiva -- Kraig -- 52.32 MPG
10. HF/DX -- FritzR -- 49.9 MPG
11. Civic VX 1992 -- AlainB7 -- 48.97 MPG
12. 49 MPG CIVIC -- SuperVX -- 48.83 MPG
13. 90 Laser -- DRW -- 48.19 MPG
14. Pregnant Rollerskate -- BailOut -- 48.16 MPG
15. amazing mazda -- 1cheap1 -- 47.98 MPG


If you don't see your car on here, you probably don't have 10 fill-ups yet, or you last entered into your gaslog before September first.

The last car on this list was # 58 on the official list.

Yep, I'm #103 on the list but I have logged all 44 tanks of gas I have ever put in my car since new at around 14,600 miles.

A lot of those contenders might not had of done that by letting a tank slip by here and there.

I've talked to phleas, the owner of the 2003 cavalier a few times via private messages. Seems legit to me and not totally out of the realm of possibility.

Top 25 above EPA:
http://www.gassavers.org/garage/viewall/epa

1. 2003 Cavalier - phleas 163.2%
2. 90 Laser - DRW 118.7%
3. PaleCivic - 96 DX sedan 5-spd - PaleMelanesian 108.5%
4. The Subinator - JV-Tuga 101.9%
5. 01_SILVER_1 (SATURNFAN) - usedgeo 98.17%
6. The Metro Experience - jwxr7 96.72%
7. DOHCtor Green MPG(semi-retired) - diamondlarry 92.55%
8. Geoyta - ELF 90.22%
9. Mileage Master - jstol3 88.60%
10. Keeps on Rollin' - basjoos 84.97%
11. Red GrandAm - mjswan 78.85%
12. '95 Civic DX hatchback - cems70 75.78%
13. Black 'Stang - mjswan 71.17%
14. Winter ride - tweakmenow 71.04%
15. red mustang - kim 70.61%
16. Silver Sipper CRX - 101mpg 68.32%
17. High MPG Odyssey - hondaguydude 68.05%
18. bumble - HotSauce 67.35%
19. 2 Runner - Mentalic 67.31%
20. 1997 Escort - landon 66.92%
21. The_Silver_Yaris - roadrunner 66.68%
22. The Mits (Troy) - atomicradish 66.45%
23. Mountaineer AWD Gas-sucker - rvanengen 65.80%
24. aleromn - aleromn 65.77%
25. White Whale (92 Accord Wagon) - Geonerd

We should probably look through these to see whose looks realistic, and how they're getting it done. Looking at the 2003 Cavalier - phleas, the only novel idea I see for a modification is this:

A decent idea for dealing with the wiper issue, though my truck's cracked windshield probably already draws enough attention...

The weird thing, though, is that user "phleas" has never posted. There's lots of entries in his gaslog, and he has comments in many of them.

I'd drive down just to go to the Port Orange Steak House right by that K-Mart or whatever that shopping mall has for an anchor store.. Seems like a stupid location, but they have great food.

I forget the name of the place, but my grandfather always loved to go to that BBQ place in Port Orange... Sonny's I think? Anyway, I'll let everyone know when I plan on coming down. Right now it looks like November. My roommate has announced he's getting married, and I've been asked to move out by Nov 01. Otherwise I really wanted to go down in a week or 2, but now i'm apartment shopping.

-Jay

Yeah, Jay, there are a few Sonny's BBQ places in the area. But there is actually a place called the Port Orange Steak House. When we went down to race during Bike Week, we'd usually end up there at least two nights. Just awesome! Even the salad rocked...LOL!
