Make the ticking counter go at a rate that is a "low average" (not very descriptive, I know) for 24 hours, do a full analysis when the forum is least active, and reset to the actual gallon change at that time.

Where vehicles have put in the correct weight (not equal 0), I'd like to see an "MPG per pound", if that makes sense, and other stuff like that. I just want to see the data from different directions.

If you specify the "stuff like that" I promise I'll show you all I can. MPG / pound should be easy

This is fantastic! Go SVOboy!

I'm glad someone else thought of it too but I was thinking of the MPG per Lb because I would like to be able to compare my relative progress with the small car bunch to see how I'm stacking up. Mpg per lb seems like the only easy way to do this. Will this be available in the garage for individual cars?

How about dividing up the mpg figures into percentiles to give an idea of the range of mpg figures. The 24% average is cool but with the percentiles it would give an idea where any individual ecomodder is in relation to the crowd.

I think this is my competitive side coming out.

A chart would be very cool too but now I'm dreaming.

Ohh! how about a cloud of ecomodders on a graph with vehicle weight and mpg graphed. Yummy.

Actually, if you go to the top ten lists, you'll be able to find your ranking, I believe.

Currently I'm 9/1862 gas-burning vehicles

MPG/lb will be done soon. Also, the secret thing I am working on is graphs, so look out!

I've read that in some ecodriving contests the cars are classified not by FE alone, but by FE/weight. This allows the big boys to compete with the small fry.

If you select the fuel log entries with the cost per gallon entered, you could put a dollar figure on the savings.

And, what is the "whole new web tech?"

As alluding to before, the new thing is fancy flash graphing, which isn't new but is new to me. I'm working through some educational materials until I'm confident enough to do create a web app for it.

Great stats.

Following could be great also :
  • distribution of avg / %over EPA
  • avg / %over EPA per month & seasons
  • avg / %over EPA for last 3, 6 & 12 months

I was hoping no one would think of the per month/season stat since I wanted to seem smart for doing it! O well, keep the good suggestions coming.

Working on graphing now, when I figure it I'll get back to the nitty gritty.
