Texas Tech Storm Chaser (in 1994 Honda Civic DX coupe)

Hello! this is my first post on ecomodder.
First, I will give you my background. I am currently a student at Texas Tech University and I am studying geophysics. My life's passion is weather. I have been actively storm chasing for the last 5 years. But unlike a lot of college students I have to pay for my own gas lol. So, after a few years of chasing it in a 5.4l F 150, then a Land Rover I decided (after my Land Rover was totaled by hail , ironically while not on a storm chase) it would be in my best interest 2 purchase a car that used much less fuel!

Last summer I purchased a pitiful 1994 Honda Civic DX coupe. Initially my fuel mileage was between 31 and 34 miles per gallon, just under EPA.
Now, my current tank record is 43.8 miles per gallon all but 100 miles was in town as well!

Below I will attach a few pictures of my car explaining the modifications I have done, and the ones that are in the works.
