With very radical hypermiling and virtually no mods to the car you could double the roughly 31 mpg combined estimation. That's of course assuming that the car is operating effectively and is in good repair. City Driving doesn't necessarily have to be a disadvantage. It can be an advantage. Hypermiling is very tactical, and all sorts of things that one might normally assume are merely negatives can be not nearly as negative as you imagine. There are a lot of variables.
See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
