A paltry 49.9. (4.7 l/100km). I thought Ernie was coming and I'd have no chance. I didn't even check the tire pressure before leaving home. It was during the banquet that Hamsterdiesel asked what my number was. She said, "Better tell Fred". It turned out to be the highest of anyone in the room.
If there is a fest attendee with a higher number/lower rate that they believe to be factual, and they weren't in the banquet room to respond, post your result.

A lot of people didn't enter in the show and shine because they didn't think their cars would win or something. Pure bunk, I say. Everyone should have entered, regardless of car condition. Keep in mind that a lot of show and shine points are for mileage.

Mine is a honest working TDI and not a show poodle. Plus I was on vacation and the last thing I was going to do is clean up the car for a three hour show. Also I didn't register for the show and only got back to the hotel at 1330 Sunday afternoon after a morning downtown so missed half of it by then anyways. The only person my car really has to satisfy is me as it's owner/operator.

That wasn't intended as a slam against you. Mostly just a slam against BlueCTTDi and his euro-upgraded big-turbo 6-speed Golf that just sat in the lot without anyone oohing and aahing over it.

Ditto - shame on you BlueCT!

Sad that no New England Golfs could represent my poor baby sitting home with broken brake pad...
