Thanks. I just spray painted it with some filler primer I had. Probably needs a clear coat to shine it up some and help keep it from peeling.

Question: should I join? At 45.5mpg currently, I will pull your standings down. With the overwhelming majority of my miles being freeway transits, I definitely have an upper limit to what I can achieve. In the summer it looks like I can push 50mpg (last tank was 49.5 calculated, a PR for this car and second all-time to a 50+ in my Echo), but that's about the best I can see myself doing. We do have long, abusively hot summers here where I can establish a string of good tanks. On the other hand, I would raise your % over EPA...what say you?

Wait, I actually need to join, right?

Lame effort...

The honored tradition of Team Honda, since the venerable Brucepick set up this thread and perhaps since the dawn of time, has been that all Hondas are welcome without qualification. May the great spaghetti monster bless your efforts...

EDIT: took you guys below Team Chevy. Sorry.

Yes, I do! But EM use seems down in general in recent years.

Team Honda is the only team with more than 3 members

We need to do something to revive the competition
