MPG rally in Lacey, WA

Calling all FE geeks.

I'm looking for participants to drive in a city sponsored MPG rally in Lacey, Washington. This first year effort is to show what can be done to improve MPG in vehicles we already own. It is to be run in conjunction with the Lacey alternative fuel fair and EV races on 8 May.

The rally will be run on public roads, takes about 2.5 hours to complete in a loop from/to the fair. Vehicles will be ranked in order of % over combined EPA ratings. Participants are encouraged to remain at the fair to answer questions about hypermiling by the public.

The city of Lacey doesn't have a page devoted to this yet so I can't point you to anything right now. I can say that AndrewJ has created an excellent flyer as a handout at the fair. Thanks Andrew!!!!!

Is anyone interested in participating? Do you know anyone that might be interested? If so please PM me.

Andrew it will be great to finally meet you. I hope we can get a critical mass of what I think would be about 10 participants to make this a real success.
