Once Lawson and/or Chad have a chance to get a few things together and cleaned up they will post the remaining results from the “Longest Distance Driven to TDIFest”, and “Best Fuel Economy Traveling to TDIFest”.

I speak with appreciation for the TDIclub powers that be that honoroed MOGolf and Oilhammer's with the TDIClub Community Service Award. That is wonderful as those two did a lot of leg work to get this nasty chain business figured out. Kudos to you two!

The Award for Best Fuel Economy for people being at the Banquet...

I got 1097kms out of 48.23L going at 110-115 km/h with some spikes more the whole trip:
- 4.40 l/100kms

Translation:

I got 682 miles out of 12.74 Gals going at about 70 mph and some more for the whole trip.
- 53.5 MPG

Gotta love the long trips

I know cross posting is generally frowned upon but I think this would be a good place to keep everything together.
