Highest MPG for a non-hybrid: Mitsubishi Mirage
Best non-hybrid MPG: 2014 Mitsubishi Mirage?
Mitsubishi says its new Mirage subcompact will get the best MPG of any non-hybrid: 44 mpg (US) highway, 37 city. (Some drivers are already beating that in various economy driving contests.) How? An efficient 1.2L, 3-cylinder engine, very light weight and aerodynamic design.

2005 Prius engine into 1986 MR2: mk1 1nzfxe Prius swap (gas only)

Mr220v informs us that used Prius engines are dirt cheap, and therefore fun to experiment with! He swapped one into an MR2, and using the Prius variable cam timing/Atkinson design, he now has variable compression on demand, via a push-button. He's still working out tuning, but fuel economy has gone up a healthy amount, from ~30 to 37 mpg (US).
