We have a 99XLE (to haul the whole family) and it gets similar mileage. It's a van and has the aerodynamics of a rounded off brick along with a fair amount of weight. Getting something you can see your instantaneous milage to modigy driving behavior is your only hope for better FE... unless you want to make it look like the aerocivic, and then I'm not sure how much you'd accomplish. I think you'd be better off with a different vehicle as a starting point if high MPG is your goal.
