Broadview Heights, eh? I pass by that area at least twice a week on my commute. Interested to know what finalized data y'all come up with.

Sounds good. Simple is best, even if it may not be the fairest to every possible entrant.

Are we doing first click on the gas pump fill?

I will see what I can do about making it. I currently am scheduled to run a disc golf tournament, but should be able to get someone to swap me weekends. On a side note, that is pretty far north. I was hoping for something a little more central. :/ (I was just up in Norwalk though this past weekend... so i guess it is not that much further of a drive.)

yet me know the date and I will try to make it down from MI

no gain for fastest time is just fine by me.

You all might want to start modding your cars

I can get 50MPG without coasting out of my 29 EPA matrix (72% over epa). toss in some P&G and that number goes over 60 MPG. unexpected route will hurt it by 5-8 MPG, but I have a hard time getting under 40-45 even if i tried. That's 30-40% over EPA and not trying for record MPG's.

Good luck to all who race,

I hope you enjoy second place

Think we should limit the competition to OHIO cars and drivers?

I AIN'T SCARED.

I think he is joking. I would rather not. I welcome everyone to join in, I want Mustang Dave to come and show me how to drive a stang efficiently, but I don't think he'll be making it out...lol

I mean, I definitely don't expect to win. But a little friendly competition seems like a good idea for an ice breaker, to utilize our cars and mods, and up until then, we are all just. Well, nothing.

I think nothing of internet people, because it is so easy to lie and fake things. I like facts! And although I don't think anyone here lies or anything, seeing is believing for me. You guys really don't know how excited I am to see a real life boat tail, fabricated onto a Vibe/Matrix. It'll be nice to add a tone, and personality to the text I read from you guys.

For me, it's a jump from some guys chatting online to really meeting some people. And my wife is coming with me tomorrow to record, so we will have the route on video for us! I will try to remember to not talk or play my radio, as that might get a bit annoying. If you all can, add this to your sigs to spread the word a bit. Does anyone know how to change the title? Since this went from maybe sep oct meetup to Oct. 20, Ohio Fuel Challenge! 13:00 start time.

Weather Spotter: of course I was joking! You had a smiley in your post, and I had one in my reply! Sorry if anyone missed my attempt at humor...
