Another chopped car with better MPG: Metro convertible

Someone sent a link to this car...

...I was impressed with the chop top and the "45 to 70 mpg" written on the gas cap. Dry lakes racers have known for many years chopping the top raisings a car's top speed, due to lowering its frontal area. It can also improve the gas mileage.
The back of the car simply says "60+ mpg".
