MPG challenge

Postby ChrisB » Wed Oct 03, 2007 12:44 pm

Just spotted this, not that its really EV based but has an eco slant on it.

I wonder if they would let me play next year with the berlingo and a gallon of fuel to run a generator ??? dunno if that would work mind you :lol:

It looks interesting but I'm busy tomorrow (maybe next year as you say Chris). Could be a bit embarrasing to turn up in a Prius seeing the scores that the VW Lupo is getting but I like the % over published figures game!
Again not one for the Prius but I used to do well in my Zaferia.
looks like a job for a Honda Insight.

Website is a bit style over content for my liking!!
Soft as Graphite, Hard as Diamond, Black as Coal & clear as CO2, It's a Carbon thing!

Good Idea

Perhaps have to go down next year and give them all a good thrashing :D

The website is rubbish though, no indication of rules/fees etc. I hate the two hands passing the paper up and down. :(

Two MK1 Honda Insight's. One running 20ah A123 Lithium pack. One 8ah BetterBattery Nimh pack.
One HCH1 Civic Hybrid running 60ah A123 Lithium pack.

It was on the local 6 O'clock news on BBC1 last night and looks like there will be another item about it tonight. This is the sort of thing we need to do too. Niki? :wink:

I'm up for it with the Zest as I'm about to make it a hybrid :D
