60 plus mpg club

Hello all

I have a 2015 mirage with a 5 speed.

It has a few modifications but its mostly stock.

My goal is 75mpg, and my current best is 64. I hope to achieve my goals by tightening up my poor driving habits, and adding a few more aerodynamic, mechanical and electrical modifications.

This past summer i suffered a torn quad tendon that im still in recovery from, so if i get a little over zealous on the post count.. Your ganna have too forgive me.

Some members may recognize me from the mirage forum. Yes it's me. I came here for the cooler emojis

You're way ahead of me, MightyMirage! Nice going.

Best tank so far in my winter beater 2000 Metro is 57 MPG. But I'm adding mods almost weekly at this point. (Wish I'd started working on it just a little sooner while tinkering weather was nicer.)

You should make a garage page to list your mods -- Your Garage: Add new vehicle
Project MPGiata! Mods for getting 50+ MPG from a 1990 Miata
Honda mods: Ecomodding my $800 Honda Fit 5-speed beater
Mitsu mods: 70 MPG in my ecomodded, dirt cheap, 3-cylinder Mirage.
