    Good idea. I'm going to add links to the various eco-driving competitions/challenges.

    Hey,

    is there a way to add some more info to the Mirage fuel log, such as seen in the ecomodder.com forum?
    It would be great to have these summary features, like total mileage, total savings, average distance cost, total cost, etc...

    thx for the consideration.

    Why, yes there is.

    I actually have several requests for additions. I'll be honest: it's going to be a couple more weeks before I can get to them. I'll post about it when I do though.

    How are the mpg numbers calculated?

    Are the lifetime fuel economy numbers added and divided by the number of cars or are all the miles added and divided by the number of gallons? Assuming everyone drove the same distance the later method would skew the figure to a lower mpg.

    It's total distance and total fuel volume of all entries.

    The log is meant for complete fill-ups. Otherwise you don't know your actual fuel consumption.

    The Mirage's onboard fuel economy display is reasonably accurate, but not 100%.
