35mpg.
My current mods were: drop the car 2inch and weight reduction(ac, spare wheel...)
Next mods: grill block, and front tire deflectors.
And now has 17inch tires. Later 15inch for winter.

Sounds like a good start.

From north, Cantabria.
The weather is very variable. And the roads are up and down and with many curves. Which is hard to save fuel.
