Hyundai Accent going for 50

hey everyone,

i just got myself a DD to drive to work and back. I used to have a hyundai accent in high school and got 27-29mpg on avg, but once on an all freeway cruise i managed 42 mpg so remembering that i know that driving carefully with the small 1.5L you can get good mileage.

i now got myself a totally base model 02 accent 1.5L 5spd without AC. The car weighs almost nothing and on my first tank i managed 37mpg. After changing the dirty air filter and pumping tires to 40 psi i got 42.7mpg on my 2nd tank.

This encouraged me to sign up here and see if i can get this lil fella to 50 mpg, while keeping it mostly stock.

anyone else with an accent/rio here?

I rented a '10 Rio last year, and averaged 43.7 mpg over 3600 miles, with the last 2 tanks over 49 mpg. I'd have averaged 45 mpg if not for 45 mpg crosswinds for 2 tanks.
