Web site

I maintain a site called www.MetroMPG.com which I use to describe the car to others who may be considering getting one of these fuel economy leaders, as well as document economy mods, efficiency driving tips (used to be an instructor while I was in school) and info about fuel efficiency in general.
Modifications
I keep an up to date list of vehicle mods on MetroMPG.com.

But by far the single largest contributor to improved fuel economy is driving technique.
Planned Modifications
- test Aitabs
- front wheel skirts
- XFi cam
- wheel spats/deflectors
- would love to experiment with a removable and/or inflatable boat tail
