Good Job Jethro! Nice job on the 63mpg!!! It was only a matter of time till you passed me Don't feel bad about passing me after two years of working towards this goal I can rest in the fact that I'm the top ATX It's a difficult path to travel with an ATX, especially with you guys coming on so strong this year. The top 10 didn't change for a long time, now there are three new faces!

I'm thinking about some mods that could help me maintain 50mpg through the winter, then next year I can focus on 55mpg through the summer.

Thanks, Man. I've learned everything from reading you older guys posts. And I still can't imagine getting the numbers you do with an automatic.

nice job by all means pass me. I agree we need more active on the list. I guess i need to actually start doing the mods now. I had vacation last week and was going to get a lot of them done but I decided to actually take a vacation and sit around, sleep, stay up late, eat everything i shouldnt, drink. It was fun but getting up for work this morning sucked big time and think that wasnt the best idea. Now i need a vacation from my vacation.

Have you seen the new and improved Top 10 Page? Deathtrain is number 2 and Tygen1 is number 4. I think MetroMPG has been VERY busy behind the scenes lately.

Just when I thought I would never see the top ten again!

I like the improvement in this! But it was nice seeing the all time high's that others have achieved. Don't want to lose the history, but also don't want to dilute the now....

The main POE list seems to be remaining. Maybe that will be the "Over-All, Hall-Of-Fame, ..."

Maybe this thread and our drive for the top ten lists has caused this change?
