There have been many Honda "tuners" that claim to have their cars tuned to run more lean and get 50+ mpg. Not sure how valid these claims are, how reliable the cars are afterward, or what long term effects or problems this might have on the engine. Eccentrically make any car a "lean burn."

One would think if safety and emissions allowed it, all the car manufacturers would be tuning their cars this way.
