That 62 mpg has to be in the Japanese rating (our EPA) which always rates really high. There is no way that its actually getting that good of mileage. The aerodynamics would need to be almost as good as Basjoos car to come that close to his mileage. Also, they've always had a 1.3L option for overseas. There is a 1.3L overseas option for my 1997 Paseo vs the 1.5L I have in mine. I prefer the diesel personally which rates even higher.
