Changes at GreenHybrid

As some of you may know, I've been a moderator at GreenHybrid but things are changing and in two weeks, I will cease to function as a moderator. It has building for a long time and recent creation of a hybrid specific, mileage database has given me a place to go.

The new database, myhybridcar.com, has a specific flag for 'modified' cars that are not part of the vehicle mileage record. This is right because the goal is really to understand what stock hybrids do. The myhybridcar site supports only hybrid vehicle, one of the reasons why I'm leaving GreenHybrid that is trying to expand to include non-hybrid vehicles.

Now I have an NHW11 Prius that nibbles on the edges of modified and am likely to replace a 2001 Echo with a 2010 Prius. The 2010 Prius will remain in stock configuration while my 118k mile Prius, now well beyond all warranties, becomes a great host for vehicle modifications (if something doesn't work, no problem.)

This note is just to let folks know things at another site have changed. Obviously a mileage database that doesn't include non-hybrids won't be very attractive to most folks here so I'm not "trolling for members." I just wanted to make sure folks understood what is going on ... even if they don't care.

Thanks for the info. Too bad they don't have multiple database categories that allow for variation. This way the stock versions could compete against themselves and the mods could do their own thing.

Hi, I'm Jason Siegel, owner of myHybridcar.com. cfg83, I'm always interested in suggestions about how to improve the fuel economy database. Could you perhaps be a little more specific about what you mean? The database is currently capable of providing statistics for each Make/Model/Generation/Layout/Transmission configuration; there just isn't enough data to provide accurate stats yet.

Hi Jason -

Whoops, I misread the original post. I understood the OP to mean that GreenHybrid was narrowing it's focus rather than expanding it's focus.

Please disregard my previous post and good luck with your new forum, .
