Pretty soon you will need to monetize your channel

LOL :smile2:  I'm guessing that would take a lot of time and effort. Do people actually make money doing that? I have thought about doing more videos, but I need to update to new Laptop, not in the budget right now. :(

You would be surprised then how many people monetize their channel and they can make some serious money.  Its all based off number of views that you get your money.  I think its about $0.01-0.02 per view or something like that.  I'm not sure what the requirements are, but you have to have a fair amount of views to be able to Monetize.  

 

There are a Lot of people that Live off of the money they make from their YouTube Channel.

I was wondering if anyone has looked into a ECM Tuner for our Hybrids to improve fuel economy?headscratch.gif

If you don't have the lifetime summary screen in the left display after shutdown you are out of luck. That display was available early in 2013 but latter in the 2013 model year it was removed. There is no way to get it back if it is not there.

 

Sorry,

Last production date with Lifetime Summary is June 30, 2013.

 

I barely made the cut, bought my car August 29th, production date of June 13th.

 

Wouldn't want it any other way, so glad I got in before the Ford excess information hacking started...

 

As far as monetizing videos, you need thousands of views, not 100's.

With warmer temps (80-90*F) speeds 40-55 mph and a bike on the back half the time, I'm getting 60.5mpg, with 230 miles on this tank. Using the info from these videos you should expect similar MPG's. smile.png

my last tank was 49.2 on the trip and 49.03 at the pump.

I don't have any grill covers on currently, the weather seems to go from 90 degrees one day and 54 the next.  Been very busy with work/kids i haven't spend any time with the cover with license plate issue.

I've been in a hurry a lot lately too, so i haven't been driving as well as i can, Plus a lot of hills.

I did get 63.5 on a trip the other day.
