New from Minnesota

Been working on my mileage for a while now. Saw the fuel log with the fancy chart and though I'd put my data in.

I drive a 2001 VW Jetta TDI. Getting 50+mpg now. I *thought* I was getting good mileage before but wasn't tracking it closely. When I started actually crunching the numbers, I found out I was getting only 39mpg. I slowed down first and saw some great improvement. Then I pumped up my tires, saw another great gain.

I'm currently stalled out at about 51mpg and I'm looking to maybe try 'pulse and glide' for part of my 80 mile commute.

Welcome...

That's a great improvement! I agree -- a ScanGauge is a valuable tool to instantly tell you the "rights and wrongs" of Eco-Driving technique.

Enjoy the site -- and best FE to ya...

Ok.. this is silly. How do I get my nice ecomodder badge to show up at the bottom of my posts? I'm in the "signature" part of my profile... but I can't tell what to do.

I can tell I should be referring to my image at: http://ecomodder.com/forum/fe-graphs/sig1052a.png but I can't figure out how to make it display.
