    Default SMCC Economy Run - Montreal - 6/9/12



    Click on the flyer for full event info.

    Saturday, June 9th, 2012.

    A fuel economy rally on fun to drive roads. The goal is to stay on time while minimising fuel consumption. There will be several elapsed time controls at which you may arrive early without penalty. Controls may only be located at the end of a section (EOS). Penalties will be accorded based on fuel consumption and lateness. There will equally be penalties for leaving a control before the given out-time. No previous experience is required to participate. 100% asphalt. Any car can complete the event without problems. The route is identical to the both the 2010 & 2011 events allowing comparisons with previous results.





    Here are last June's results converted to mpg:

    1977 Datsun B210 [1.4 liter] 60.40 mpg
    2005 Smart [.8 liter diesel] 56.81 mpg
    2010 Smart [1.0 liter gas] 58.94 mpg
    2011 Honda Civic Hybrid 53.45 mpg
    1999 Toyota Tercel 52.38 mpg
    2001 Toyota Echo 51.80
    2011 Hyundai Elantra 43.23 mpg
    1992 Toyota Levin GT-Apex 41.85 mpg

    I'm looking forward to this event again this year. The rally aspect, in having to stay on time while simultaneously trying to minimise fuel consumtion, really adds up to very interesting challenge. This is a unique event with great people.

    Just a week away folks! I am very pleased to have David Wood as my navigator again this year. We will be in my newly aquired '97 Geo Metro. Three cylinders and one liter is all we'll need! [lol].

    We had great weather and excellent competition. Plenty of great results to discuss for a long time.

    For the third straight year we had perfect weather! Kudo's to Jeff and the SMCC for another great event up north.

    The overall winner was...


    Darin Cosgrove of Ecomodder.com. He won overall this year with his 2000 Honda Insight. It is a very efficient car with it's lean burn engine, light curb weight, and superior aerodynamics. And Darin knows how to get every bit of efficiency out of it!


    I couldn't have been more pleased with second overall in my "refurbished" stock '97 Geo Metro. The nice thing about this event is that it uses the same route each time so you can compare your results from year to year. I've run in all three events and these are my raw mpg results to date:

    2010 - 2.0L '93 Sentra SE-R: 57.74 mpg
    2011 - 1.4L '77 Datsun B210: 60.40 mpg
    2012 - 1.0 L '97 Geo Metro: 64.43 mpg.

    There is more good news, participation for this event was up again this year. The number of vehicles competing:

    2010 - 6 cars
    2011 - 10 cars
    2012 - 16 cars


    My Metro parked next to Ken Snowman's wild 1990 gas powered "FrankenJetta".




    Check out Francis Reid's Toyota Echo. I love wild aero mods!


    They called this car the Duck Nose Echo.


    Underneath view. He had a full belly pan and side skirts like I had on my SE-R last year. This thing was cool!


    The turnout from Team Smart Quebec was very impressive with no less than 8 entries. Four were gas powered and the other four were with the .8 liter diesels. The best one was a diesel driven by Frederic Bedard, at a great 73.50 mpg.


    Organizer Jeff Dungen's rare RHD Toyota Levin Apex GT had it's best outing ever at 50.15 mpg. This is with a high performance 20 valve 1.6 liter engine with individual throttle bodies!
