Well! Posting your 70+ tank at teamswift sure kicked up a little dust!
I wonder why some people get so worked up from someone posting high numbers.
Trying to think of the opposite -- it's like someone mentioning a Quarter-Mile time in Drag Racing, or top speed achieved, etc...it may very well have happened with the numbers posted, but people will have their doubts, and be vocal about it.
Sad part is, there's really no way to absolutely prove the mileage unless you do some sort of video documentary or have an onsite, independent panel of Scientists. 1/4-mile slips can be scanned or published rally stage times can be noted.
So around here, the honor system seems to work Other places, ummm....

I stopped doing that after I had to spend time trying to convince people that over 55 mpg was indeed possible. I didn't think it was worth the effort - and there was nobody to back me up at the time.

Thanx to MetroMPG and Coyote X for speaking up for jamie on teamswift.net.
Actually I think the moaning and groaning at teamswift will give jwxr7 the impetus for even more improvement. It becomes a personal battle within yourself to accomplish what others say and think can't be done.
