I have an SGII, but I usually forget to look at it until the end of a trip.

Looks like I beat socket too! Much less margin than with johnny. Was a lot closer this time.

Do you have any instrumentation you're using Bhazard or are you flyin' blind?

Congrats PTSmith24

I want to congratulate PTSmith24 on a great run

I managed 34.42 in some cold and windy conditions, so I also have to thank Matt and the spirit of the competition for driving me to get a much better tank than I normally do this time of year.

I've used an SGII for about a year, and the SG-I for a couple years prior. It's a great tool, and was really pretty accurate.

Best FE to the rest of the contestants!

-Rick / RH77

Results are pouring into the Ultimate Ecomodder Studios tonight!

RH77 put up a good fight against gale-force winds and wicked temps but fell in his matchup with PTSmith and the Camry. PTSmith advances to the second round...and...because he already posted his second round tank...he was able to push past Big Dave's F-350 Red Baron. PTSmith is now in the semifinals!

Updated bracket is attached...

Well, if all goes according to plan, I will be making a 240 mile round-trip (all freeway ) to visit a friend at college tomorrow. I will need to stop to fill up while I am there, so hopefully this trip will boost my 3rd AND 4th tanks (hoping that they are needed)

BINGER! Where are you!?!?!??

Well I just got back from my trip and got an astonishing 28.94 MPG!!!!! OMG!

Too bad that this tank is one tank too far. Even if I make it to the finals I still won't use this tank :-\

And again, WHERE IS BINGER!!!!?!?!?!????
