I posted this in the wrong forum accidentally so here it is. Anyone want to tell me how to delete to other one?
I've mentioned that I'm a numbers junkie in another thread and that's no lie. It's an addiction really. After seeing the results of the Eco-VPE test that Mav and 007taco did I am really interested in taking these tests to a larger test group and expanding the data collected. Knowing that there are several of us that will end up buying the Eco device to try it out and that there are many more that won't spend the money, here's what I'd like to do if anyone is interested.
I've got a spreadsheet with all of the necessary data from Mav's test and will be getting the data from 007Taco's test in there shortly as well as starting to add my own. Using the theory of large numbers, the more data we get the better the information produced. To help you don't have to have the system (in fact, we'll need some that don't as a control group). Below is the list of data items I'm asking for. Simply send me periodic updates every tank or 2 with the info and I'll add it in. Then we can start to see the larger trends not only of the VPE, but of all sorts of mods.
Thanks ahead of time for anyone that helps out. I know this is not exact, but in real science you look for trends and that's what I'd like to do here. There are several variables but we have the chance to reduce their effect through volume.
Send data in any format you'd like but please include as much of this data as you can.
approximate miles on truck (i.e. 10K, 54K, 110K, etc)

4x4 (yes or no)
Transmission (i.e. 5-spd manual, 4-speed auto, etc)
Eco VPE installed (yes or no)
Stock exhaust or aftermarket (include manufacturer for aftermarket)
Total miles for a given tank (tank 1 - 220.5 miles, tank 2 - 180 miles)
Gallons at fill-up (tank 1 - 17 gallons, tank 2 - 14 gallons)
Any accessories you have that may effect efficiency (i.e. roof rack, Running boards, bull bar, etc - please include manufacturer if possible)
Towing/hauling for this tank (yes or no)
Tire Size (265/70 R16, 31x10.50x15, etc)
Date of fill-up
*Approximate average speed
*% highway miles
*Any assorted notes you care to include
