A contest would have to compensate for region.. As with JerryScript, I ride into work every day. And Doppler Radar is my best friend. If it's raining, usually I can just wait for a break in the pattern and change my departure time by 15 minutes or so if necessary. But I do ride in the rain, cause how else am I going to wash the scooter?
We've had the wettest winter/spring(?) on record here!! Calling for sunshine the next 3DAYS Yep, I rode in today. Will also tomorrow. Need to fill the tank and see what kinda mileage i'm getting.
*edit...second day scootin. Filled the tank at a gas station for the first time so I can figure out the mpg. At 585miles and 1.316 gallons to fill.
**1.215 gallons at 658miles
right around 60.08 mpg at an average of 41 mph. Now i gotta figure out how many miles to pay for itself so...word problem if the truck gets 13mpg and gas is at an average of $2.20/gallon. How many miles to pay for itself if i am trying to pay off $360?
Need to put around 2750 miles on the scooter for it to have paid for itself. Not as good as I thought. Specially since i still need to buy some tires for it. I'm up for the challenge though!!!
More updates for me ***1.444 gallons at 755 so i can go 100miles on a full tank. Now at 67.17mpg!! yay! This is probably closer than the other as I had to put a little gas in it just to get to the gas station.
