Same construction technique as the one I just stuck on my 2000 Metro:

No idea! I didn't get around to doing a speed vs. MPG graph for the car this summer. If I had to guess, I'd say around 35 mpg @ 65 mph with the mods that are currently on the car.
Cool man, thanks for that great info. I was driving my Lexus LS400 tonight and the car runs at 2200 RPM's at 65 MPH. It actually runs slightly over 2600 RPM's at 80 MPH. I am going to see what MPG this car gets running it at 65 MPH for a week straight with the cruise control on and drive like I normally do. Then I will try a week of hypermiling at 65 MPH to see what improvements can be made. I will report this back in a new Lexus LS400 post.

You might inspire me to coroplast this Lexus!
