Welcome to the site.

We have a few aspire owners who have done a fair amount of modding. I suggest checking out what they've done as well as looking at the 100+ hypermiling tips and 65+ mods list (links at the top of the page). 60 mpg is doable.

Thanks, I will.
My 1994 has done a 53mpg as a best so far. So I don't have far to go.

Check out the garage to see what other Aspire owners are doing. You can search through it and find others with Aspires.
