    Congratulations, sulfuric. I can't catch you in the current challenge, even if my current tank is a couple of mpg higher. So I won't refill my tank this year. Taking the wife's car to SoCal for the holidays, so the Scion will stay parked. Happy Holidays, all. I learned a lot this challenge, and will get more serious in FE XII, in Div. A.

    Last fill for this challenge, still beating original epa highway by 4mpg despite cold, snow/ice and some city on my daily commute. It was close but I think I have marathon division wrapped up. Here's to weather more conducive to efficiency.

    I filled today, but only about 4-5 miles of my tank was driven today, the rest was in 2010. I had been away for the past two weeks (not much hypermiling done there, sorry!). When I got back in my car, it was obvious that the tires were low. My glides were definitely shorter than I remembered, and steering effort was higher. The tires were almost 10 PSI down.

    I'm pretty sure that the tires gradually went down over the past couple of tanks, and it took some time away from driving it daily for me to feel it.

    Sadly, my last tank brought my average down slightly more. Thus confirming my place as next-to-last in Div B.

    Interesting note: First place in Div B would have come in fourth in Div A. First in Div C would have been fifth in Div B. It looks like we are sorting ourselves reasonably well into the divisions. :)
