So........

who's here and who's not?

Seems the forum has gone into a deep slumber. You guys need a tonic of ChrisV, VWHobo and What.

CF was on life support for a while, but has begun to stir a little lately, maybe there is still hope.
It would be nice if ChrisV or the hobo decided to show up, but as far as I am concerned, What can stay gone.
ChrisV has been poking his head every now and then, and What has made new user names, but VWHobo seems to be gone for good.

I check new posts often, but rarely post. The forum has definately been slow for quite some time. The three you mentioned post once in awhile and then disappear. Hope you are doing well. Are you going to return?

Yeah I'm doing fine. I think if the three of them do respond, they will feed of each other, with the occasional sacrifice thrown in.

Don't know if I have much to offer the forum. It tended to become a place for juvenile behaviour, which is cute initially, but not really sustaining.

Mate, ChrisV and VWHobo are the little known 5th and 6th members of the horsemen of the apocalypse gang. You really need to be prepared with six shooters if they do emerge from hibernation.

3rd time checking in 1 month. Prior to that I was positing a few times and hadn't been here in about 3/4 year... glad to see not much has changed.

How would we compare though? I'm down. I've already started messing around, like inflating the tires a bit over 35psi and I throw it into neutral when I have to stop.

I'm thinking an improvement over baseline. I don't even compare about the competition that much, I'm going to try it and wouldn't mind seeing other people's results.

I've been giving some of it a try too, but I only drive ~6 miles a day now, so it will be a while before I can tell if it has proved anything. I probably spend most of my gas starting my car and backing out of my driveway. I find that coasting up to red lights and stuff makes you think much further up the road, even if it does irritate some of the people behind you. Jersey drivers are so gas happy. It sure is fun to watch them cut around you and race up to the light and slam on their brakes to stop, and you just coast up, and it is green by the time you get there, so you roll through at 25, and they have to accelerate from 0.

Not trying to hard, but I get ~19 mpg in the city with the GTO... not bad for me

I drop in every now and then, and it seems like hobo makes a post about once a year.
