Off the top of my head for the CRX I don't know the gear ratio, but you could put a transmission with better ratios in and improve your gas mileage that way, for that sporty feel you would have to down shift of course, but you have that option.
As far as my research has gone, The HF tranny is the highest geared ratio tranny, even better than the VX tranny...
