Car Club USA: CleanMPG Northwest Rally

Quote:
Car Club USA heads to Los Angeles for the CleanMPG Northwest Rally, where a group of like-minded hypermiling enthusiasts led by Wayne Gerdes attempts to drive from Los Angeles, CA, to Bend, OR, on one tank of fuel.

For this challenge, Wayne tapped some of the most accomplished hypermilers in the world, including Guinness World Record holder Bob Winger and Mike Sefton, "the most fuel efficient driver in all of Canada." It doesn't take long for the competition to get heated.

"They're not aggressive enough, and it's not going to save them anything by being soft right now," says Gerdes as the group attempts to navigate the Interstate traffic. "Driving in Los Angeles is a hyper miler's nightmare," says Winger.

The trip will challenge both car and driver, while putting the latest fuel-efficient tech to the test. Wayne is piloting the Volkswagen Golf Sportwagen TDI, Sefton drives the Audi A3 TDI, and Winger attempts the trek in a Honda Accord Hybrid. It's diesel versus hybrid tech on this fuel-efficient trip of a lifetime.

The search box shows fifty-two results for Wayne, although I am not sure that I am familiar with him, although I would like to read about him later.

Wayne owns cleanmpg.com. Hes a very hardcore hypermiler. I believe he is the one who actually coined the term. He however, is not an advocate for modding cars.

I am attempting to join his website and make a formal challenge.

He will deny it and be a loser or accept it and still end up a loser.
