The Honda PCX 125cc EFI scooter is rated at 110 mpg and costs $3400 with ABS as an option. A homemade fairing and some extra lights would be helpful. I would seriously consider making the Mustang a restoration project for a student auto body class at the local community college as funds are available. The car should be capable of 30 mpg and aero mods plus hypermilling could yield twice that. A bike motor and fairing may allow you to go 30 mph if legal. Calculate the value of your time and the cost of the bike at 200 mpg and 300 mpg with a good fairing system. Welcome to the mix. What's with Frank? Spring fever?
