EcoModders employ a combination of vehicle mods, driving techniques, and common sense to squeeze every penny out of the pumps. Reasons for becoming a member range from the economical to the ecological. More info about where EcoModding came from.

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).
