Think you can hypermile? Ford contest will give the winner a car *
 
(* But you have to live in Britain :))

Via ABG: Ford looking for the UK's greenest motorist

Quote:

Ford is ready for you to prove what you've got through the "Ford ECOnetic Smart Driving Challenge." In a convenient bit of advertising, Ford will bring models from the Ford ECOnetic range around the UK this summer for six "regional smart driving events."

The six events will be made up of three parts. The 200 selected participants will be tested on their fuel consumption and CO2 output in two rounds. Between the two, Ford and the Energy Saving Trust will provide greener driving tips. Regional winners will win a loan of a 1.6-litre Ford Focus ECOnetic and the overall winner gets an eco makeover for their home worth 10,000.
I wonder how long it'll be before we see this type of thing cross the pond...

If it's like all the cool engine options they have...never...but that would be very fun, and useful to raise awareness towards FE.

It would be nice to see a contest for the everyday "Joe the Plumber" not car companies or businesses. I would like to hear the different ideas and see the many modifications that are out there. Individuals can be very meticulious with their ideas and could possibly have better ideas than any company could have.
That would be awesome to put everyones ideas into one vehicle and see what we come up with.

It would be an engineering marvel. So simple a child could build/fix it. It would get more than 100 mpg and cost less than $5,000.:thumbup:

...hey, last I knew, FORD MOTOR COMPANY was founded in USA, so what the hell is wrong with having such a "contest" on *this* side of the pond?
