Howdy!

A Previa with a manual transmission, that's a combination that didn't happen very often in les Etats Unis. There are only seven other Previas in the Ecomodder Garage, and of those only one is a manual. The manual van hasn't been updated since 2008, so any info you can provide about a manny-tranny Previa will be rare and interesting. The most actively updated Previa is owned by orange4boy, and he generates up to 31+ mpg (US gallons, 7.1l / 100k) with his automatic van.

Start a Garage page for your van, wander around and meet some folks. We like to talk about cars.

Welcome to the site. What kind of fuel economy are you currently getting with the Previa?

Well, the first step before any mods is establishing a baseline. This will allow you to measure if and how much a modification has improved your fuel economy.
