Hey all Name is Tim
I have been interested in gaining more miles for a while (miss my old turbo sprint-60mpg)
My current fleet (I am a little bit of a motorhead) :
Current drivers:
Daily car: 82 Mercedes 300SD I run this on veggy oil so I'm not too sure what milage I am getting as i just dunp the stuff in there when it needs it, probably about 25 mpg.
Daily Bike: 07 Kaw KLR650 Not the most economical bike but I get in the upper 50's on it which is more then it's supposed to (every few tanks I'll mess around with hypermiling but that really cuts into the fun factor)
Playtoy: 86 Mercedes 560SEC well the mileage of this isn't worth mentioning but I might put 100 miles or so a year on it.

'90 Mercedes 560SEC I converted it from a big V8 to a turbo diesel i will run on veg. Also puttin airbag suspension and a more aerodynamic body kit to gain a few more mpg's.

Am also building a 82 Yamaha SR185 (which I later found out is the bike that won the craig vetter mpg challenge in the 80's) into a really lightweight little streetracer with the side benefit of being a eco beast.

And Lastly My81 VW diesel rabbit pickup which gets 50+mpg on veg. I don't know why this isn't my main vehice.

So I have learned a bit from this site so far and hiope to learn a bit more as well as contribute where I can. thanks.
