Improved Aero by Lowering

So, I've read and heard where people who lower there cars get improved gas mileage...especially bricks like Jeeps and whatnot. And I know this has probably been beat to death...but I'm curious as to whether or not lowering my DD ('02 SVT Focus) would yeild any improvements in gas mileage. I know the Focus isn't exactly a brick like some vehicles, but I figure going a little lower and maybe a rear diffuser (and maybe a belly pan) would help out some. but i'm not sure the cost and amount of effort is worth the ROI. I would say my cutoff for it being worth my time would be a consistant 1.5mpg+ increase. But, I may would accept a little less.

So, anybody done this to their '00-'04 Foci and seen improvements?
