    I noticed the GH-style mileage signature box you've been sporting for a little while. Did you photoshop that or is it linked to a secret cleanmpg mileage database? I like the look, and definitely like the comparison to your car's EPA rating. If that were standard forum equipment I wouldn't complain. :D

    Shhhhh! This is top secret stuff Brick! If Tom tells you anything he will have to kill you. At least thats what he told me.:D

    My guess is that it is part of his master plan.... Increase your FE by 10% and you get a flashy new sig.

    Ok...I'll bite... what's the starting point / baseline (10% above lmpg, tank-to-tank, or above mfr estimates, or ?), and at what point do we start measuring ? I've been improving my own, but part of that is due to break-in and climate. But if it's a 'straight 10% tank to tank', I'm practically there, if you look at my tanks on GH.

    Two asides...

    a) it'd be nice to have one of those here, as I'm early in the lmpg on this car, and it wouldn't take much to repost those here.

    b) I like Tom's sig better than the other one that krousdb is sporting, if we're allowed to 'vote'....:p

    maybe using Xcel's old 'valedictorian' criteria? Wasn't that 120% of EPA combined for 5 tanks' worth?

    nevermind...I just read Tom's sig. can't be that.

    Hi John:

    ___Enter in your tank data in the CleanMPG Mileage DBase and you can have a real sig too … I will expect to see you data up within a day or two for our sig vs. other’s if you know what I mean ;)

    ___Tom could always create a simple template for overrides but its best to input real data and use it in your hosts sig with accuracy.

    ___Good Luck

    Umm...mods...a little help... LOL

    Need the 3 cars I added that don't have the name 'Aoko' deleted from the db. I tried to, via the 'mark for deletion' box, but it keeps adding cars.

    Note on data entry - when you add the 'car name', and then select the car year / make / model, it resets the name to the user's default - you might want to see if you can fix that, or, place the 'car name' after the 'pick your vehicle' section. That's how I messed up in the first place - I didn't notice the car name had changed before I submitted the record.

    Appreciate you adding this feature, btw...many props! :)

    I got my tanks in, just need to see if I got them right. For some reason the DB's math doesn't quite jibe with my own math. Miles and gallons seem to add up funny. My spreasheet and the GH database put me at 30.77mpg, this one puts me at 30.66mpg or so. I also get a strange "divided by zero" type error when I view the DB while logged in. Strangely, that goes away when I'm not logged in. If I'm the only one who sees it I'll post a screenshot tonight.

    I fixed a divide by zero error last night for entering multiple tanks. Is it related to that or is it different?

    Mark, what version of windows and browser are you using? I don't seem to have the problem in linux using firefox, or at work using windows xp and IE 6.0 sp2

    Green&Blue Well-Known Member

    I entered the data from work, which is an XP sp2, running IE 6.0 sp1

    I'm leaving for the day now, but will logon from home later tonight - I use WinXP there, too, but w/ Firefox - let's see if I can edit / delete, etc - I'll post as to my success / fail.

    Here's what I'm getting:

    I tried clearing the cache but it looks like it's the site and not me. This doesn't happen when I'm not logged in.

    Try it now. I think it might have to do with you being such an early member of the site, some of the variables weren't set up for you automaticaly when you created your account. Let me know if it fixed your problem

    Testing my sig: I see it works by following the above instructions

    brick Answers to "that guy."

    Fixed! Now I still don't see the signature box but at least this is a step in the right direction! Some of us don't seem to have the fancy blocks generated for us when we view our vehicles.

    I figured out what that math error was. I just had a duplicate tank in there that needed to be deleted. User error!

    Looks like I'm going to be the guy w/ problems - I tried using the 'edit / delete' feature, and added 2 more cars - I *wish* I owned six Acuras... ::j/k::

    Also, when I tried to add the first tank to the one car I intend to keep (Aoko), I got the following text in the browser screen when I clicked on both 'add only this tank' and 'I want to add more tanks' (yes, I entered data separately for each attempt):

    -raise 1x1 /home/cleanmpg/public_html/garage/images/62.png /home/cleanmpg/public_html/garage/images/62.png
    (all on one line)
    I'll bet it has something to do with the multiple cars (?)

    I'll hold off transferring the tank data for now. Too bad - I just posted a 57.3 mpg tank - my best yet - on the 'other site' :D
