Talking Happy 7th to us! Get your birthday prizes! (ScanGauges, etc.)

Hard to believe it, but ...

That's right, EcoModder turns 7 years old this month (Dec. 3rd to be exact).

And as usual, we're marking the occasion with a birthday loot extravaganza.

Birthday Party Prizes
  • ScanGauge II: (generously provided by Linear Logic) will be awarded at random to one member* who posts in any thread in the forum between 12:01 AM EST (Dec. 3) and 11:59 PM EST 2 weeks later (Dec. 17th).
  • EcoModder decals: one additional randomly chosen member who posts in the forum in the same time period will receive a free pair of decals.
* ... only members who joined before today can win.

So, Happy Birthday to us! And as always, thanks to everyone -- moderators and members alike -- who make EcoModder worth celebrating.

Contest results to be posted [here] later.

And more good news!

As global events would have it, the odds of winning something are MUCH better this year than in several past b-days. With oil prices touching 5 year lows, activity in the forum is down a fair bit.

Only the hard-core efficiency nuts are left vying for the freebies now.

Now is the time to really reap the harvest! Low fuel prices + still not use much = an excuse to buy yourself something nice for Xmas. I'm getting a block heater!
