and the gasoline competition



here we go again,

This is a month by month competition. Everytime you make an entry it will be added up and recorded together according to the fuel type and car/year you are driving.
THIS IS NOT an individual tank competition (or a partial tank competition for that matter).

Entries will be accepted until October 5th...but remember, report tanks filled in September

If you have any questions, PM me.

Entry format:
------------------------------------------------------
Driver:
Miles:
Gallons:
Model year:

(Anything else you would like to add)
------------------------------------------------------

US Gallons

Tranny Types
(x)A = x speed automatic
(x)M = x speed manual *
DSG = direct-shift gearbox
CVT = continuously variable transmission
*If you have swapped in a taller 5th gear please note this (ie: 5M w/.681)

Fuel types
Bx = biodiesel - x is the percentage of bio
Biodiesel use equal to, or more than, B20 will be indicated in GREEN
ULSD / LSD / D2 = normal petroleum based diesel

They didn't put a 6 speed in the HD's till 2006
I did get 16 mpg stock before I lifted it. Bought the truck for hauling. not MPG.
The wife drives 120miles a day. I'm a construction worker. Mine varies from 10 miles to 120 miles a day.

Well hay, maybe I should start putting in my Ford Danger numbers. It gets 25 to 30. Thing is, I only drive it 200 miles per month and can go 300 miles between fills.
