35 mpg

I posted something on here earlier about growing up with a 1960 Chevy Impala 4 door with 283, 2 speed powerglide that routinely broke the 20 MPG on the highway with 4 people in it and a trunk full of suitcases. So I dont think the 35 mpg is out of the question but I read somewhere that a 100 lb reduction in weight was only about 1/10 of a mile per gallon improvement. So I agree with the other folks that say to put less resources in weight reduction and more time into Aero and driving technique. Good Luck
