Almost any car can be improved - as shown many times here at ECOmodder, point beeing that car manufactors could do a lot better, but don't dues to beeing afraid that cars might not sell well if they look to odd.....

Ecomodder is about many things, saving fuel and money, doing someting for the environment etc. People motives vary.

Personally I like the econoboxes - so does my wallet....
That isn't my point. If you asked someone "hey I want to make my old house more efficient" how would you feel if they said "tear it down and build another"...?

Sure you can have a more efficient house by replacing it but there are massive improvements you can do to make the house that is bought and paid for more efficient... Just like you can make a bought and paid for car more efficient.
