Hi my name is Jake, I live near st paul mn. I currently drive a 95 honda civic cx I've been averaging 40-44mpgs when its nice out. I purchased the car about a year ago after selling my beloved jeep cherokee (love these things, just couldn't afford to drive it 70-80 miles round trip everyday)

Currently the car is stock as I've been content with the mileage, tires are at 45psi. just recently I decided to adjust my driving habits from 75-80 to 60-65. My commute is all freeway a 70mph zone so its hard to not piss people off haha.

My planned mods are
Removing side mirrors and intalling convex mirrors inside
Block heater
Alternater on off switch with a battery tender/ maintainer
Wiper delete but ill keep them in the car for the sh*tty days
Lowering the car
I'm currently in the process of making a bumper similar to tomO's original design.
Maybe some kind of wing that acts as a partial kammback

My goal is to well get better mileage without any extremely ugly mods. Haha
