mpg vs. speed - Metro graph

(Originally written May / 06)

Took a break this afternoon because it was good testing weather ...



Bi-directional averaged 1.7 km long runs on my level "test course"

Conditions at SUPN6 as of (3:00 pm EDT) 1900 GMT on 05/03/2006:

Wind Direction (WDIR): NNE ( 30 deg true )
Wind Speed (WSPD): 3 kts
Wind Gust (GST): 4 kts
Atmospheric Pressure (PRES): 29.94 in
Air Temperature (ATMP): 58.8 °F (this temp. avg'd with another land-based station)

raw data fyi:

km/h - W mpg - E mpg
55 ... 83.1 ... 82.4
60 ... 77.8 ... 76.3
65 ... 74.1 ... 71.7
70 ... 71.2 ... 70.8
75 ... 67.2 ... 62.7
80 ... 63.3 ... 59.3
85 ... 59.4 ... 56.4
