you may be right, i've been wanting to look into it more. I know the stock Cd value is .4 something, which is pretty bad so if it was drastically decreased, the mpg could go up a bit. it has a couple other things going for it: low weight and a small frontal area. i don't know if the rear wheel drive would be less efficient.
