Did you hear that by Feb 20th you have to have a 1000 subscribers and 4000 hours of views in a year to get paid, otherwise no google pay.

 

I realize you're trying to push videos for profit, but please, enough here.  Can you go advertise elsewhere and let this thread and your other one fall off instead of keeping pushing it every week?

I think he's trying to keep it at the top so new people see it.  Maybe it should just be sticky?

I never had any expectations of doing any advertising, just want New Members to know there are ways to improve MPG's with very little effort which means I need to update the thread so they will see it.  This is obviously working with the number of views going up about a hundred per week. :smile2:  It would nice if you could see an improvement in CMAX MPG's on fuelly.com, atleast mine keeps going up. :smile2:

I tried it and it works for me, I wonder if you have something keeping you from Linking up with You Tube. You can search on You Tube for MR CMAX or CMAX great mileage.  :smile2:

Went to Columbus, GA yesterday afternoon to bike ride the Riverwalk.  It's about 69 miles from Newnan, 70*F , averaged about 65 mph on I-85/ I-185 with good drafting partners, 550 ft. drop in elevation and got 59 mpg. Coming back averaging about 70 mpg and not much drafting got 49 mpg.  Sure is nice having the warmer temps.smile.png

Couple of days ago we made our usual trip up to North Atlanta to see New Grandson up I-85/I-285.  It's about 50 miles each way, temps 77*F going up, AC on half of the time Wife was getting hot.smile.png  Speeds were 80 mph to stop and go for accident , took about 15 min. longer than usual, started with 56 mpg on tank average ended with 55.9mpg. Going Home temps down to 70*F, speeds 75 mph to 60 mph and ended with 56.1 mpg, sure is nice to have warmer temps.smile.png  My MPG's HWY are only a few mpg less than City. yahoo.gif‚Äč BTW You Tube views are up to 5,600 and hopefully CMAX/FFH MPG's will be going up on fuelly.com. this Summer.smile.png

With temps in the 65 - 80*F range we are in the best MPG range for the CMAX Hybrid and FFH now.  Here is my last trip to N. Atlanta and my tank fill up.

Trip going up temps 78*F, little tailwind and speeds 75 - 65mph.

Trip going back temp 73*F, little head winds and speeds 70 - 60 mph less drafting.

Actual MPG for tank 56.6 mpg and almost 800 miles.smile.png  

YouTube video views up to 6500 now.

 

 

I use Fuelly.com to keep track of my fillups and gas mileage.  I use GasBuddy.com  to find the best gas prices which you can save 10 - 20%.smile.png
