Got links?

At the start of this Northern Hemisphere warm season, I'm reviving this challenge. Here is the list of the current record holders, people who got either a 70 mpg tank or a 70 mpg average on a single run. See post #1 for details of the challenge and the "prizes."

What I am looking for now is help finding profile and/or garage links for these vehicles:

THE LISTS OF WINNERS (in no particular order):

1. FTA (Full Tank Average)
PaleCivic (96 Civic DX)
PaleFit (08 Fit Sport)
Winter-beater-Metro (00 Chevy Metro)
BlackFly (98 Metro)
Sport Coupe (92 Ford Tempo GL)
AerocivicLB (92 Civic CX/VX)
The Little Car (00 Chevy Metro)
Nut Wagon (91 Civic Wagon DX)
Daox's Paseo (97 Toyota Paseo)
ecoDrudge (07 EU-spec Ford Fusion TDCi)

2. SRA (Single Run Average)
Swarthy (14 Mitsubishi Mirage DE)
Black & Green (98 Honda Civic DX)
GreenTDI (11 Skoda Fabia Estate)
K-sight (00 Honda Insight de-hybridized with a K24 swap)
Mirage #2 (14 Mitsubishi Mirage SE)
... others ...?
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.
