Wow! What a great car to bring back to life! When it was brand new you could expect upper 40's low 50's in fuel economy and even if you just get it back in running condition you should have a super practical and efficient little Civic. Probably the easiest modification would be to lower the ride height a bit and get some lightweight wheels and low rolling resistance tires, the rest of the car should already be very efficient.
