Think you can hypermile? Ford contest will give the winner a car *

(* But you have to live in Britain )

Via ABG: Ford looking for the UK's greenest motorist

Quote:
Ford is ready for you to prove what you've got through the "Ford ECOnetic Smart Driving Challenge." In a convenient bit of advertising, Ford will bring models from the Ford ECOnetic range around the UK this summer for six "regional smart driving events."

The six events will be made up of three parts. The 200 selected participants will be tested on their fuel consumption and CO2 output in two rounds. Between the two, Ford and the Energy Saving Trust will provide greener driving tips. Regional winners will win a loan of a 1.6-litre Ford Focus ECOnetic and the overall winner gets an eco makeover for their home worth 10,000.
I wonder how long it'll be before we see this type of thing cross the pond...
