Forget taking the headrests out and that nonsense. Start aero-modding. Put a belly pan under the car to smooth the airflow. Install smooth wheel covers and a grille block. And most of all, learn how to drive efficiently. Read these through and through, then get your hands on some coroplast and get dirty!

Here's what the underside of your car should look like when you're done:


Also try wheel skirts and maybe even an air dam. If you're clinically insane look into a Kammback!

Some inspiration in the form of my Probe:


And I believe this is MetroMPG's Metro with an aforementioned Kammback.

Then you should look up the build thread on the brown Saturn S series sedan. That guy's only visible mods are grille blocks and smooth wheel covers.
