Hello! Minnesota Checking in---

Hey my name is Adam, I drive a 2001 Hyundai Accent. I was referred from another car forum, and I recently have been getting into trying to get better gas mileage.

Recently after putting lighter weight wheels and lowering it more, Im currently getting 40.5mpg on Highway, and 34-35mpg City. Stock is 35-37mpg Highway!!

Good to see you made it over here, Adam! Maybe I can actually make it to a meet again someday and hang with you, or see you over at James' house sometime.

Welcome to the site. The Accent is quite capable of very impressive mileage. Good luck with it. Any specific mods planned?

Im making a new skid plate for the front. I need cap off all areas and direct airflow that the plastic stock plate can not. Thats really all I can do now.
