Hey

I'm new to this stuff but not afraid to try new things. I have a 1996 SC1 5-speed and I've been getting form 37 to 41mpgs with 3-4 people driving 90 miles 4 to 5 times a month. We ride share and a different person drives each day. I rarely see interstates so this is driving through a couple small towns and there is hills no matter what route I take. I probably don't see more than 7-or 8 miles of non interupted highway, I coast whenever I can.
Chris

Welcome to EM! Is that a 1st gen SC1 with the "sedan nose"? I always like that combo.

I'm not sure what the sedan nose is but I used coroplast and red duct tape to cover the radiator slots below the bumper last week. That may be why it looks different in the pic.

Welcome to EM. It sounds like you're doing pretty well with your commute, mileage-wise.

Ditto on that!

Welcome to the forums.

Car pooling is definitely an encourage practice around here.
