    Yes, beating the EPA combined for my (rough average) 80% city driving is great!:woot:
    But this current tank?:(
    I'll be lucky to meet EPA combined (33mpg), much less beat it.:mad:
    I'm going to call my dealership to see how much an engine block heater will cost, or research other ways to beat the cold.

    On to the next challenge!

    Back home :) and back on board :D

    Happy new year to everyone :p

    Registered my last December tank in my FE log : 725.2 mi @ 55.26 mpgUS (longest tank).

    FE chall. went from +43.65% (54.588mpgUS) down to +42.92% (54.311mpgUS) :eek:

    I can't say if additives in the high octane gas I used helped to clean the engine... temps and traffic are varying so much...

    Have fun,

    How do I recycle for the next challenge? Do I just delete the old info and change the name on the car to FE 16? Also can I do that now or do I need to wait until you give the go-ahead?

    Kirk, yes, you just delete all the entries for the log and rename it in the "edit" feature. It is also requested you wait the full 7 days until the final results are posted, so that I can take a screenshot and post that.

    I took the easy route and made a new log. Maybe I can look back at it next year and laugh at my crappy mileage entries.

    Or, there is that. Either way works!

    Good job Die2Self, you ended my streak of 2nd place finishes. At least I beat your MPG (barely).

    Mr Pancake,

    Sorry to have pushed you back in the standings, but with the new car I can compete in Division B now and I hope to be up around that MPG that you are posting by next Spring/Summer. We were always so close before you got your hybrid and I had my truck, now were are stomping the same ground again.

    Congrats on your continued stout MPG in your Hybrid. To all those that get in his way that is "MR" Pancake to you :D

    Go MPG's :Banane09:

    i'm pulling for you, we are all in this together ;)
