    I drive economically, but no hypermiling.
    25plus is on the very top of the list of the most economical at spritmonitor.de.

    Also to be considered: This car used to be more economical than it is now ever since it was "repaired" by a Mitsubishi dealership. Since that job, compression became much lower.

    If I end up getting a house of my own I would just for the hell of it and A/C is overrated I drove a Geo for 6 years with no A/C. On hot days it sucked but that's what 360 A/C is for. I would have to swap the 5spd or the factory 3spd auto. I would need a complete engine with harness. I would build the engine though for more power and torque. lol I would first get a high millage mirage to make the swap worth it. You got me thinking now lol.
