Post Why does "MPG" not have it's own Forum?

Let me start by saying, I am addicted to TW since buying my taco! (rarely go 48 hours with checking the site) My high school never provided any form of shop or automotive class so much of my truck maintenance/modification skill is self taught and TW has been an absolute wealth of information.

I've noticed the 2nd Gen Forum always getting flooded with mpg questions and the responses being the same again and again (egg behind pedal, lift=bad mpg, mph>65=bad mpg, etc) with some users a little annoyed that folks keep asking the same questions rather than using the all-knowing search. Hope this question isn't out of line... has there been any thought to having a separate Forum just for MPG?

imho, a separate forum would allow for meaningful discussion between users who want to discuss mpg as well as allow for sticky's of mpg specific mods and spare the rest of us from reading it (like how there's an audio forum). Did my hw, TW's averaging 2-3 new mpg posts/week over the last month:

I know there are hyper-miling forums out there... One called EcoModder.com is interesting.. Those folks go to some great lengths to get their vehicles, BIG/small, as efficient as possible.. Maybe check that out?

I only go to New Posts and my Control Panel, i can be oblivious to which forum people post.

Might as well be a separate forum for "What's the biggest Tire", and "How to Debadge", and "I'm looking for the Best".

I don't think it would be wise for "MPG" to have it's own forum because this is a truck site after all. 99% of the people on here aren't too concerned with MPG. We all are somewhat because we bought mid size trucks but not greatly concerned with it.

Use of the search function would have prevented 2 - 3 MPG threads from being started every week because, as you said, the same responses were coming up in each one of them...
