    Can you guys please re-think your strategy of posting a monthly fuel economy post for each vehicle? It essentially amounts to blog spam, clearly in an attempt to increase the # of ads you display. In my case, I'm pretty sure it achieves the reverse-I'll avoid the blog entirely during the monthly pile of useless posts, rather than click through to a single summary post every month. Or, better yet, how about you create a dedicated "LTRT Fuel Economy page", and have your editors update every time they check in/out a car?

    I don't mind these posts, but if you are going to do it, please standardize on what info they are going to have - some of them are really complete like this one, and some, like for the Passat TDI, give the miles for the month and the new lifetime average, but not what it averaged for the month of December, etc.
