So... GasSavers = Fuelly now

Anybody else notice? It's been 3 or 4 months now since they started forwarding the gassavers.org domain.

That's at least two different owners since EM started up!

The only reason EcoModder got started in the first place was because GasSavers' founder backed out of an arrangement which would have seen some of the old moderators take the reins.

Yes, I saw that. And I never knew why EM started; I just noticed that the quality content drifted over here and the Unicorn Poop took over there.

From my perspective, EcoModder has always been the better domain name, especially in comparison to GasSavers but also Fuely. It has a broader spirit, connoting the mechanics, the engineering, and various fuels and technologies.

I sense impending doom for the website.
Caused by the lack luster name of it.
It needs something with some POW or at least a common search term

MPG Misers ? MPG savers ? MPG modders

MPG stretchers , MPG something or another ..

The forum portion of Fuelly is pretty lame. It also has been down for over 2 days now.

I have been using Fuelly to track my mileage since 2011; no complaints from me as it does what I want it to.
