Hello, noxman -

I have not made any videos, but have recorded fuel consumption on a level road at various speeds in cars with a 1.0L and 1.8L gasoline engines and manual transmissions.


and Speed kills: testing MPH vs. MPG in top gear -

These were both done on level roads. Readings were not "instant", but averages taken over a distance > 1km, and then repeated in the return direction.

Other EcoModder members have done similar runs with other vehicles.
Project MPGiata! Mods for getting 50+ MPG from a 1990 Miata
Honda mods: Ecomodding my $800 Honda Fit 5-speed beater
Mitsu mods: 70 MPG in my ecomodded, dirt cheap, 3-cylinder Mirage.
Ecodriving test: Manual vs. automatic transmission MPG showdown

has launched a forum for the efficient new Mitsubishi Mirage - fuel efficiency info for Geo Metro owners - electric car conversion on a beer budget
