LOL, just had a look at my only team (you mentioned the mirror...), and saw that our %-over-epa numbers are almost identical: 28.7692 and 28.7667. Are Gray's EPA numbers based on a standard test, or they're similar, 'made up' ones as for the F650CS? I used the factory data for 90 and 120km/h, not having anything else.

Looks like fjasper's "Sylvio" will be dropping off Team VW at the end of October... then... Ha! Ha!... We'll probably still be behind you... but still.

For a year or two Suzuki and Kawasaki published fuel consumption figures for there motorcycles, I think it was based on the EPA city cycle, but I'm not sure. Gray has been put into hibernation for the snowy season. As that will result in no fuel entries for more than 90 days, so you will be on your own for a few months in the motorcycle team.

A new number 4 on the general list of top vehicles, an Insight. But he seems to be manipulating or mismanaging the dates on his fuel log entries! Hahaha!!

I'll continue riding as long as I can! We don't have snow yet (sometimes we even have snow-less years), we only had our first morning frost yesterday - and today again. I'm going home soon, my night shift is almost over. I'll rely on my heated gloves pretty much from now on.

Anyway, I'm working on a "plan b" myself, I'm taking driving lessons now...

New guy. I can cut him a little slack. He can go back and put in dates for the two where he missed. If I recall, if you enter the date in the wrong format it can end up as zeroes.

Filled-up yesterday, before a professional highway trip : 906.3mi @71.01mpg.

My 90 days MPG went down from 73.9 to 73.3.

With a little luck it should be one of my last tank with Megane... and in diesel team

Have fun,

Denis.
