Thanks! Your website (along with this one) was certainly a source of inspiration for us when we decided to purchase our Metro in 2010. And the similarity of the mods we've done to the ones on your car definitely aren't coincidental.

In our case, when you consider that this car is (a) shared between my wife and myself and (b) used as a family vehicle for our family of four, the numbers in our fuel log (80 MPG average year round since 2016, over a cumulative 100,000+ miles [I need to update it]) are even more impressive. If it was just me driving by myself all of the time, it would almost certainly be even higher.

With that said, I am incredibly grateful to be married to someone who is an extremely skilled hypermiler in her own right.
