I'd really love to join. I'm not sure if you can put me down for a "maybe," but that's probably the best I can do right now. I'm pumped at the prospect of a scooter road trip from IL to NY (yeah, I'm nuts), but my fall semester starts on Aug 25. So, if I can get moved in to my new apartment soon enough, I can probably make it out to NY.

I90 eh? It has been a long time since I have gone up to albany, I am usually going up 91 a bit to the east. Oh well, I am excited at the prospect of a challenge once more. Darin only had me about around 10 mpg, I am sure I can find some improvements, somewhere.

Excellent -thanks for putting me in, Mike.

I like the plan to fill to the brim for MPG measurement. Are there any vehicles registered that *can't* be filled to the brim? (CEL / evap issues?)

If so, after this year's Green Grand Prix, for those vehicles I'd recommend some sort of simple dipstick measurement to fill at least to the same point, part way up the filler neck, rather than "1st click". 1st click is faith-based filling ; a dipstick is primitive, but it's scientific. And I believe the EVAP intake is usually right at the top of the neck, so it would still be OK to do.

SVO,

I see how you go to Fonda, NY...didn't know what side of NH you lived on. Definitely a better route the way you described.

I'm looking forward to seeing some of the cars on the list. Some interesting ones there.

Anyone planning to stay over the night before?

Actually, if the speeds were a little lower, I'd bring an athlete friend who would complete the course on an upright bicycle in 4-5 hours with zero fuel.

Also, don't worry about the Insight ... it's averaging 64 gallons per mile. I've used about 0.4 gallons charging the batteries and testing the cooling system, and gone about 10m up and down the driveway.

I'm looking forward to meeting some EcoModders and seeing their machines, and it'll be fun to see old tech vs new tech, and two wheels vs four.
