As I said previously, I love Concrete's sig :
Start where you are - Use what you have - Do what you can.
While I have the feeling that I'm doing well I'm satisfied. I entered the megane's log on cleanMPG and gassaver garages and I found myself in tops

I'm currently with my 1997 megane at 4.5l/100 (52mpg), ie the same level of the 2008 model, ie 33% gas saving (EPA +50%)

My next goal is to be at prius' CO2 emission rate, which means 3.9l/100 (60mpg) with a diesel. The 15% additional saving will be very hard but if I can't reach my goal I will have tried

For my next car I would like an hybrid to be able to stop the engine in (what I consider) a safe way. But with the last cars, such as the Honda Civic 2.2L iCDTi Turbo Diesel, I'm reconsidering what I would like as next car. Look at this review : CleanMPG reviews the 2007 Honda Civic 2.2L iCDTi Turbo Diesel - CleanMPG Forums (look at the ECO LED part for FE).

But before all, you must have fun behind the wheel

Save money & CO2 at home :

Earth and health are priceless, so are kilotank and AT-PZEV
Best Mégane tank: 1268.9mi @ 77.847 MPG(US)
2008/06-2011/10 saving:
  • 5725.5 kg CO2 (5342.6+382.9)
  • Diesel / Money: 42.17% = 2446.25€ = 3357.26$
