What next? Chop off both legs and an arm to reduce weight? Or remove the safety belts air bags and strip the dash to bare metal so you have a machine that automatically does that for you.

He gets 50%+ better fuel economy than any Insight I've ever seen, but the base car still does extraordinarily well.
