I've just finished a nice quiz about eco-driving. It calculates your ecological quotient and gives you tips and tricks for reducing fuel consumption.
I have obtained a 12/20 score!
___There are a few mistakes in your presentation but you will figure them out...
___Now let us here about your Hypermiling skill. What % over the EU combined are you currently holding over the past year.
___This is where I find extreme fault with the ECO-drive programs. If you do not know where you have been, how do you know if what you are doing is working?
___Hypermiling works because it is not a tip sheet but proven techniques we are all accountable for each and every time we turn the key. I am not saying you have to use the entire toolbox by any means but if you are accountable for your fuel consumption and CO2 output, you can do something about it rather then simply talk about it as most of our compatriots do.

I don't know why you deleted the link, I presume that it was to the quiz that gave false information on fuel economy, but some more information could be usefull to let it look less than censorship and more like moderating. Again, If the link is offensive or so, just mention it. If it's not, I'm always interested to see what other people think of eco-driving (even if it's not correct)
___Post number one and he is driving traffic. He had two questions that were dead wrong (seconds off during a FAS before restart and shift RPM’s) and 2 others that were grey and multiple misspellings in the French to English translation. He then failed to reply to my request. Typical troll tactic so I pulled the link.

OK, thanks for the clearing that to me

The same post appears on several other forums (same wording, same username), so it's easy to find the link if you want to.
You probably wouldn't want to though - the quiz is superficial at best.
