Ecky, I am glad you are willing to take this on and the Aerocivic didn't just go the the crusher. When you get it sorted and are able to take highway trips I hope you will continue to post some mpg numbers "with no hypermiling" as that would highlight the aerodynamics of the car over driver skill using EOC and other techniques.
60 mpg hwy highest, 50+mpg lifetime
TDi=fast frugal fun
