Hi all!
The Tour De Sol is on hiatus and in its place was the 21st Century Automotive Challenge. I made you guys proud. I have a CVT insight with a lifetime MPG of 48.8mpg. I know, utterly patheric. I was almost embarrassed to enter the event, but i am a member of the club that put on the event, so i felt like i had to. I practiced and my best mpg's leading up to race day was 64.4 mpg.

Well, to make a long story short, I won the competition with a MPG of 78.8!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 8)
156 miles, 1.978 gallons of fuel
Wow x a million.

I was thoroughly impressed with some of the Prius'es who got mileage in the upper 60's. For the first half, one Prius got 73mpg, but not so good on the second half. I guess i never researched Prius hypermilers!
