Welcome aboard. You're obviously already doing a few things right to get 21mpg out of that truck. Congrats.

A smaller, lighter, more efficient car always makes the most sense. There's so many inexpensive 30mpg cars that can be cajoled into 40+mpg with the right techniques, some relatively minor mods, and discipline. Personally, I think the only requirement is a manual transmission, 1996 or newer so you can plug in a Scangauge, and EPA highway numbers better than 30 and you're well on your way to a car that pays you back rather than takes from you every time you drive.
