Sweet! I was just suggesting use the parts off the $300 bucket to swap to manual, but you already have most of the parts You might look into EOC (on an empty road for starters). Mind if you have power brakes or steering that they get a lot harder to use when the engine stops. But I wouldn't be suprised if you could approach 40mpg just by pumping up the tires and using techniques like EOC and DWL with a vacuum gauge.
