Round One Success

I beat an ecomodder moderator in the Ultimate Ecomodder Fuel Economy Challenge!
cfg83 gave me a run for my money, but I squeezed him out after some intense pulse and gliding this week. That little green star just wasn't enough to hold Olivia back! Ha Ha! I must say, cfg83 was a very worthy opponent, and I seriously doubted I could keep up with him. He was a really good sport at putting up with all my trash talk, too.

Uh oh. Who am I up against for round two? woof. No rest for the weary!
