Added to the tool: you can now "save" the results of your form input by copying the "Permalink" link at the top of the output table. This'll be useful if you want to post a link so other people can view your entire results.

EG: View the calculations / output for project Sipster (Top Gear USA's 70 mpg @ 60 mph diesel Rabbit being discussed in this thread) from these values:

Vehicle weight: 1043.3 kg / 2300 lbs
Crr: .01
Cd: .42
A: 1.9 m2 / 20 ft2
Fuel energy density (Wh/US gal.): 37953
Engine efficiency: .37 *
Drivetrain efficiency: .95 *
Parasitic overhead (Watts): 400 *
rho: 1.184 kg/m3

* These are flat out guesses on my part.
I still plan to add a link from your garage entry(/entries) so whatever values you have entered for your vehicle(s) will automatically be filled out in the input form when you click your link.
