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.

The fuel efficient versions of the Geo/Metro and CRX,Civic with lean burn are nearly legendary.
