How to set up your mileage signature

This is how to properly setup your signature to have the ecomodder image with your current mileage in it.

First, open a new tab or window by right clicking on 'User CP' on the top of the screen.





Click on "Edit Signature" on the left side of the screen.





Now, go back to the original tab or window you had open. Click on "EM Garage" and on the next screen click on the "Fuel Log" link of the vehicle whose mileage image you want in your signature.







On the top of the screen, copy the URL of the page.





Go back to your second tab/window and in the signature box type (with no spaces) "[ url=" and then paste the URL behind the equals sign. Then, put a "]" after that. So you'll have something similar to this:





Now, go back to the first tab/window and scroll to the bottom of the page. Right click the signature image you see there and click "Properties".





In the properties window highlight and copy the URL again.





Again, go back to the second tab/window. Immediately after what you had put in before, type (with no spaces) "[ img]" and paste the URL you had copied. Then type "[/img][/url]". Click the "Preview Signature" button to make sure it works. You should have something like this now:





Now, just click "Save Signature" and your all done!

This is good information; I have been trying to do that and have had 'static' success with cut-and-paste. But where does the info in the right-hand area of the image (70.2% above EPA / HYPERMILER) come from? My sig image doesn't have any of that, even though I have entered the EPA mileage estimates. I used the average of city/hwy for the combined estimate.
Thanks in advance from the Beaver!

You need to enter the EPA rating for city, highway, and combined into the car's info.

Ya, I have that under my vehicle info, but on my fuel log it says that it's not entered?!?! I thought it might have something to do with the efficiency instrumentation field so I selected "other" but it still doesn't show.

Thanks...

Thank you Daox,

I was wondering how add this in for a signature so that it would update itself rather than just posting a static image of it into my signature.

Have a great day,
Jeff
