Most "larger" 4-cylinder cars are going to be better on a freeway than a Metro. I had a Ford Tempo about 7 years ago and I loved it. About 30 mpg before I knew what hypermiling was. I also had a '96 Pontiac Grand Prix that got ~25 mpg with a small 3.1L 6-cylinder, and that was when gas was $1.75 a gallon over here and I was 19. The Ford Escort is another decent small car.
Goal one= 30mpg on The Monte by changing the nut that connects the steering wheel to the seat.
