Re: AMEC Economy Run events thread


Agree !
One that I question is the one on AC use.
I find that on my Fiests it has little if any effect.
I suppose that it might depend on conditons and how hard the AC has to work.
So i guess it depends on if you like the wind in your hair and ears, heat a humidity, drive ith the windos open.
If yoy like the quiet of a nicely Air conditioned car. Use it.

I liked the reference to the driver.
I always tell anyone, the biggest saver is the thing attached to your right leg.

June 8th is almost here and I plan to once again compete in the [sign in to see URL]. Economy Run up in Montreal. Organizer Jeff Dungen has put together a very nice promotional pre-event video below.



If I don't have an EV before then I will use my Metro again but honestly, I like to try a different car every year. I have been trying to contact someone at both Mitsubishi America and Canada to see if they have a pre-production or Press 2014 Mitsubishi Mirage to loan me, but haven't gotten very far.

For those who aren't aware, the new Mirage is a 1.2 liter, 3 cylinder car that is the highest rated non hybrid gas car at 44 mpg. Some call it the modern version of the Geo Metro. It is due to go on sale in November.
