It goes off of the past 90 days economy, so adding the two cars I see noted for you wouldn't affect us. I believe teams are judged by actual mileage, not % over EPA- an original Insight getting 30% under EPA would beat most of us lol

But I believe you are welcome to join! The CTS V definitely, and the Cavalier is more of a how you drive it kind of thing...

It seems in the past there has been tension on who should join, but I don't think anyone is really that particular.

Oh, I only meant the CTS-V. I thought the % over EPA might help but if not I don't want to lower your average.

Things could get more interesting soon, I have a set of milled heads sitting here for it that will bump compression to 11:1, or 11.2:1 if I use a aftermarket thinner head gasket, which will tighten up the quench and allow for more timing. I have material for a grill block that I snagged last week.

Are you kidding?
At 30 something MPG you're doing better than most of us.

Don't worry about lowering our average ... we can do that by ourselves, any time we feel a bit "frisky".

Agreed. But, Lbar, do keep in mind it runs off of the last 90 days- the only fuel entry I see for the CTS V is approaching a year old. Do you still drive it?

I do, quite a bit until December-February, but I haven't been active on the forum in quite some time so nothing has been input.

Oh hey guys, I missed this thread, but I added my Miata a while back. I get okay mileage, but I wish the gearing wasn't so short.

Are you still tracking your fuel? It's never too late to add 'em.
