Just two days ago I ordered a clear coat heat rejecting paint. Gonna clear paint my car roof. Maybe also paint the pillars and window sills and rear decklid.

43 MPG is some nice fuel economy for an Ultralight Offroader. A Suby Forester from 2009 gets 20/27 and '09 Jeep Liberty was 16/22 and an '09 Jeep Wrangler 15/20. You just about halved the fuel cost and the carbon footprint of your trips.
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.
