    Think a 100 MPG round trip is possible in a Mirage?

    Yes. However I wouldn't want to do it haha. Slowing down always gets you better MPG.
    Custom Mirage products: Cruise control kit, Glove box light, MAF sensor housing, Rear sway bar, Upper grill block

    Current project: DIY Nitrous oxide setup for ~$100

    32607 miles on 7.7 gallons of gas. Now that's what I call hyper-miling!

    I'm getting a database error when I try to edit so here's some additional info:
    I tried to keep the RPM under 2k for all city driving, with occasional peaks to 3k if I hit a hill or needed to accelerate a bit quicker to stay safe.
    Highway was around 3-4k RPM depending on the speed and slope.
    This might just be my transmission being itself, but when I got onto the highway the RPM were higher than necessary. After I got up to speed, I let off the gas completely for a second or two and slowly eased back on until I wasn't losing speed. That usually let me stay at the same speed with the engine at 500-1k RPM or so lower.
    My last tank and this one were pure gas, so I'm probably down to 1-2% ethanol in my tank based on the level I get gas at.
