Back when I was driving my Vibe, it responded well to a change to synthetic oil and transmission fluid change to the tune of nearly 2mpg.

Never got around to changing the tires to LRR, but I consistently drove them @ 50 psi with no issue, I also gutted the rear end of the car by removing the back seats and leaving the spare snce it was always just me in the car.

I also resculpted the nose which helped me stay well above 40mpg throughout my time, but I never got around to lowering the vehicle or adding wheel shirts etc ...
