Re: CleanMPG World Fuel Economy Championships - Records smashed!

Initially I didn't look at the date, but when I saw "Wayne arrived in the MDX" I knew it had to be old.
MDX is a very nice vehicle of course- quiet, comfortable ,decent enough mpg for 4400 lbs and 188."

Re: CleanMPG World Fuel Economy Championships - Records smashed!

You Guys and Gals are amazing, I was sent here from the Solstice forum because my shifting at or below 2,000 rpms and only doing the speed limit would get my 2.4 gasoline engine around 35 MPG. If I had that extra 6th gear I know I could hit 40 mpg's

Boy I'd like to find a way to get that even higher.

I coast down hills, gently press on the gas, and always try to use my cruise, never going over the speed limit. well one mph.

1. Stop using cruise control.

Start your reading with the CleanMPG primer. From there you'll find lots of good information to take you as deep as you want to go.

Feel free to ask questions. The community here is always eager to help.

I managed a somewhat less impressive 21.2 mpgUK / 17.6 mpgUS in a Prius last month. In contrast though, I did get it airborne.

Abuse Indeed.

It's hard to imagine many of us even achieving those MPG figures in extreme cold Arctic temperatures... so, it definitely takes a certain driving style to achieve a mileage that low.
