You're going to love this little car.

Between 40-50 is a really good speed for mpg, and it's really easy to p&g at those speeds. A lower grille block will help with warmup and aero, but make sure you have an SG or UG first so you can watch your coolant temp. At higher speeds the grille block will help a lot, but not as much as drafting (safely).

A well trained foot can manage to get good numbers at highway speeds, but drafting is the only way to save you from the Fit's horrible shape unless you go full basjoos on it. One of Daox's switches will do great in it too (if I ever have time to wire in a relay).
