'07 tC Daily Driver

Hi, I've been lurking on here for a couple weeks. Thought I'd introduce myself.

I drive an '07 Scion tC manual, and its use is mainly for my 50 mile round trip commute to college every day. It's mostly highway miles, and with the help of a scanguage and good driving habits I'm getting around 33-34 mpg out of it.

I have some mods done to it: Tein lowering springs, Tokico HP sports shocks, short-shifter, HKS exhaust and lightweight wheels (5Zigen FN01R-C) for summer. I take it to Bandimere Speedway a couple times a year and run 1/4 mile drags, and I also might autocross with it this summer. It's not that fast of a car, but I think It's a good balance between performance and economy.

Here's a pic of it with the stock wheels on for winter.


It's nice to get some tips to squeeze the most mileage I can out of my commute
