That makes you a candidate for a hybrid, even though few of them come with a manual.

It's time to shop for another car, and I'd love to hear everyone's favorites. Two doors and manual transmission are a given.
The fairly new Honda CR-Z would fit the bill - despite being a hybrid.

The 1st gen. Honda Insight also had a version with a manual gearbox.

Though with some more effort, conventional small, lightweight and small displacement cars can return equally good FE results.

Golf? TDIs are VERY rare here. CRX? Other Honda? Geo? Toyota?
The fuel efficient versions of the Geo/Metro and CRX,Civic with lean burn are nearly legendary.
