hello eco friends

hey guys
i have stumbled across your website, and I think its awesome to see people going to the extremes with getting your pennies worth..
I have been planning on picking up another civic make a gas miser commuter, since I have about a 100km commute everyday.

I currently have a 97 civic coupe, with 330k, im getting about 33-35 mpg pending on the driving i am doing and temperature...but this is my next project car so it will soon be at 20mpg haha..

I will be picking up another 96-00 civic coupe, which i plan on doing a abs undercarriage plate, rear wheel skirts, and a front air dam with grill block off..

I am so pumped i found this place

Welcome to the site - you're just a couple of hours down the highway from me.

Since you're commuting mostly highway, you know your goal should be aerodynamic mods, tall gearing & limiting your cruising speed.

Looking forward to your project vehicle!
