What is an Economy Run?
In an Economy Run, cars are grouped in classes according to age, engine size and gear ratio. Good performance in an Economy Run calls for intensive preparation of the car. A big contributing factor in getting good fuel mileage is the way you drive. Keep your foot light on the accelerator and drive as if the fuel were costing you eight dollars a gallon. An Economy Run can be thought of as a special form of Rallye where the scoring (placement) of the entrants is determined not by how close they can stay to a predetermined time schedule or how many questions they can answer but how little fuel they have to use to complete the required route.
