    Many thanks to Marvin02 for setting up this site for me to post the data I've been collecting. It's a work in progress but it's got the basics for now. There's a page for special requests to be sent in so I can add tables, graphs, etc. Let us know what you think...

    Thanks,
    James

    Looking good. What's the best way to submit info. You could probably offer a blank spreadsheet that people could fill out and then e-mail to you.

    Marvin's working on that but he's using his personal time to build the site so we're taking it step by step. I'm just the data monkey. He set up the site so I can add news, links, downloads, etc but I don't know how to create the type of stuff needed for a submit form.
    For now, just sending me a PM and I'll give you my e-mail. Once he's got the form figured out, from there would probably be easier for everyone.

    For the 4 cylinder ones, I would categorize 4WD and PreRunner together. I get closer to 4WD mileage than I do to Standard suspension setups.

    ew! take down that e-mail address. There are trolls all over the place. You should at least spell out the "@" symbol.

    Ya know, I do that all the time, and I tell people not to do that. I am such a hypocrit.

    Oh well, time to troll the forums myself and fix that...

    Actually, they're probably crawler web-bots (little programs that crawl web links looking for email addresses and feed them back to a spammer database). Some are sophisticated enough to pull out a spelled-out email address too. Here are some better ways to do it:

    Not a bad little website. I hate MS Frontpage, but if you have a copy you can import a spreadsheet into it and it will add a module to your website allowing the website to display the data from the XLS spreadsheet.

    If your server has PHP extensions and a MySQL database I could easily and quickly set you up a relational database to gather the data and display it back to the page via PHP...but it'd be basic, someone else could make it pretty.
