Description: Formerly known as Rubber Band, this car was owned by a hypermiler lady from Tennessee and lived its whole life there. She achieved a lifetime mpg of 82.9 over 135K miles, including two tanks where she averaged over 100 MPG.

I purchased the car at the beginning of June 2017. The car had a dead IMA battery and lots of other minor age related issues, but for an insight at 135K, it was overall still in good shape.
