speed, distance, time spreadsheet

i always tell people when i am driving 25 in a 25 instead of doing 30 that it doesnt matter because on the short drive it doesnt make a real time difference (especially when you catch up to the person who just passed you sitting at a red light)

so anyhow to prove my point, i made a spreadsheet that shows the time required for a trip while maintaining consistent speed (no stops) i was surprised by some of the results, so play around with the speeds and distance (even though i labeled mph and miles you can put in km/h and km) have fun and feel free to use it to prove your point the next time your spouse yells at you for going 55 instead of 70 on a 10 mile trip

p.s. sorry of anyone already posted a novelty like this and i missed it

This would be a cool feature of Ecomodder 2.0...

According to your spreadsheet, it takes me 3.78181818 more minutes to travel my commute @ 55mph compared to 75mph.

Over the course of a year, I spend an extra 605 minutes (~10 hours) of time in my commute. Damn...

I agree - this would be perfect for an EcoModder web widget. Sigh. So many widgets, so little time!

Nice to put the facts right up front - nice work!.
