Z-39.34 and 63.91 over. basjoos needs to update to the new numbers. I think his drops all the way down to 38 mpg

Lug_Nut 03-12-2007 03:48 PM

The Passat is also a five manual.
I didn't top off the fuel tank to start this. I've been, if not exactly good about FE, at least not wasteful so far on this most recent fill-up. I'm at 400+ trip miles and still showing above 'full' on the gauge with an on-board display of 45+ mpg since last filling.
Now that I have the summer tires on (44psi and lower resistance than the 36 psi max snow tires I took off) and since I also have this friendly challenge as an added incentive to fuel economize, I hope to improve.

basjoos 03-12-2007 05:31 PM

I updated my car to the new EPA numbers (42/33/37).

GasSavers_Brock 03-12-2007 06:06 PM

I updated mine as well.

Lug your EPA numbers look like gasser numbers for the TDI? Were they really that low for diesel?

GasSavers_Brock 03-12-2007 06:20 PM

Oh ya that’s right. The diesel version was rated at 31-35-41. Should we use those numbers since that's what the diesel was rated at or is that just considered a modification? That might get team 1 closer to team 2 to start.

Just throwing out an idea as to who wins (beside all of us). Maybe go by a % change from what the numbers now to 1 month and 2 months and so on?

So right now

team 1 is 77.92
team 2 is 68.05

after a month say team one is at 79.92 and team 2 is at 71.05. The team 1 would be 2% up and team 2 would have beat us being 3% up?

That way we start where we were to even the playing field?

Let's not use this thread for discussions it will get to off topic. Let's discuss on the other thread. I'll pick this up on the other team FE thread.

I'm going to be filling up tonight. Is this the right thread for posting my results? According to the guage, things are looking good.:thumbup:

MetroMPG 03-14-2007 01:28 PM

Sure, yeah. If you feel like double-posting to the regular update thread, that's fine.

Will there be a seperate update thread for the team challenge updates? If so, has it been created yet?
