Did you seriously forget?!

I tried to make this catchy to bring attention...

Our teams are pitiful! Honda and Toyota are doing alright, but the rest seem to be slacking. For those that support the garage with their vehicles and support their fuel logs with updates, why not take a moment to join a fitting team?

EcoModder Team Competition

Personally, I would prefer mod approval before team creation occurs so it doesn't get diluted too much- it seems like people were making them and then leaving/fading away, but that's just my personal opinion. Hope others will be joining and keeping their garages up

Yeah, within Team Honda I am doing terrible with 39 mpg!!

It's pretty good though that Team Honda is so high up with 28 members.

I agree, I think the Admins should create the teams based on vehicle make and then folks can join. And users can request specialty groups if there is enough demand.

Agreed

what needs to happen is just wipe all the teams and just create teams based on manufacturer and say 1 solo truck team, 1 motorcycle

I like there being a Mustang team- we had almost double digits at one point. But why should there be a Mustang team if there isn't a Camaro team? If Mustangs and Camaros get it, why not Fits? Insights deserve one, too. Well hey, there are more Honda Civics than those, why not a team?

That is why I was hesitant to say anything...but I really want to encourage more use of it. I feel like we have a few great portions of the site that are often neglected- Teams, Tools, top efficient vehicles- things that are here but not in direct site, so I am glad more attention is going to it.

Once I'm old enough to open a checking account so that I can get a debit/credit card so I can accurately measure my fuel economy...

You can always bring cash into the gas station, fill it, then go back in for change.

What? I don't understand why this would stop you from joining a team- unless I missed something.

Not smart typically gas stations charge an extra 6-10 cents a gallon for buying with credit at the machine. I always pay cash when i fill up it helps when its an attendant only station, by choice and the gas costs the same per gal.

I never thought about that. I've always just put $25 in my tank...
