OK, here is something a little bit different. We all know about the 600+ CMax club and the goal of the Club is to break the 600 miles and go further and further and further than all your fellow brothers and sisters - all good :)
 
However, lets try something different here than riding pure MILES...lets see how high can you get your MPG but with a minimum of 500 miles?
 
Why this club and why 500 miles minimum?
 
Answer - It eliminates the short downhills where we all get 100+ MPGs and its long enough to chew up 3/4 - full tank of gas for some...but not long enough to worry those owners who fear running out of gas. I am hoping this will increase participation and improve your FE driving doing this.
 
So....its not about how long you can drive but how efficient you can drive the 500 miles. Now before you all jump on me and ask me for the "Time" - I thought about this and the way the timer works in the Trip 1 & 2 truly sucks. Its on as soon as the engine is on and will tick away when you sit in the car and not moving, working in the car or waiting in the car for a client to arrive (ala Matt and me) or you're chatting with your neighbor 4 yards from your driveway...you know the story. So if someone wants to go at 15mph and clock up the 500 miles that way - good for them...or if you are lucky to find a 500 mile downhill run....good for you - but lets see 'em....no "Oh I caught a  :airquote: big one and it just so happen to have got away"....you know the deal.
 
PS No past photos, all achievements on or post 7.19.2013 will only be accepted.
 
Lets GAME it fellow brothers and sisters of this awesome CMax Forum!

2 questions.......is there a *minimum* mpg that will be considered? And can it be the current tank, one that will end in 100 miles or so?

No minimum mpg, do your best and its that 33.6 so be it. 1 name on the honor roll. Theres a natural pecking order. If there are 100 poster who want to participate - go for it. Yes, current tank will work....otherwise I and others can pull some old photos (aka my 833.8) and go HERE! So nah, lets start afresh...

If you'll take my #10 entry in fuelly as evidence, I'll set the low bar standard:  868.6 miles on 22.54 gals equals 38.5mpg.  :doh:   Average over two tanks since my wife didn't do a reset filling up the car for the first time (panicked when she saw no gas cap). :noobie:

happy%20feet.gif Thats't the idea - more participation and no risk of running out of gas....but this does elevate the 600+ Mile Club to a higher status because its so much more difficulat to do, as you realized. Who knows maybe someone will hit high MPGs here and SCORE into the 600+ CMax Club as well....after all, 3.5.1 and the upcoming update should see a nice increase in the MPGs and where once everyone was scared at 570miles, they may be sitting more pretty with more gas at the next 570 miles ;)

You had to make me look at your fuelly....lol....ok Doug, :congrats:  you're in with the 38.5 based on your fuelly.com, and since you're a prolific poster we have some sense of trust. I know you can do better so snap us a pic when you do ;)

so this will be basically everyone's BEST mpg on their fuelly.com chart after the start date of this challenge and will rank everyone here in the cmax club regardless of mpg just so that everyone gets to be on >A< challenge list with their PR/ PB (personal best) in the cmax. the list will include everyone who posts a pix as proof.

If that's the case, then I misunderstood. This was not a fill up....This was 519 miles......I was driving and couldn't get exactly  the 500 picture. Jus, if it's supposed to be by fill up, I'll take my name off.

You are good. The rules says give us your best MPG with 500 miles minimum. Now whether you do not tank up, tank up once or 100 times between the 0 miles to 500 miles, its up to you. Yeah, you need a picture as proof but you and fotomote are good but pics next time. The rules here are far less stringent than the 600+ because its all about your MPG number but you must show you did 500+ to get that number. So your 519 is good Adair, its stands.

Lucky me, just did another trip this past weekend without knowing about this topic!  So here's my entry.  Conditions were:

 - A true "return to same point" (gas station) loop

 - 87 E0

 - Essentially all highway (about 70% 55 mph, 20% 65 mph, 10% 60 mph)

 - Just me and maybe 50 pounds of stuff

 - Light AC (300 watts on climate graph) a majority of the time

 - Heavy rain for 20 miles or so but that was offset by slower speed

"Yes Virginia", there is a "47 MPG Car"!  (But maybe not at the north pole!)
