Talking I'm In!

Well, it took me a month and a half to find a Metro but alas I found her.
As soon as I found this site, I started searching far and wide for one.
She came with several small issues but the fact that this car will actually pay for itself in one year is simply amazing. Looking forward to the coming Mods!

I have a '96 Dodge Ram (auto) and an '88 Toyota Pickup (manual).
The kicker is the 40 mile commute 6 days a week (20 miles each way).
No regrets about the distance, my wife and I wanted to live in the country and knew that we would pay for it everyday in the form of fuel, ect. I did start ecodriving the Toyota right away (after finding this site) and had a huge improvement in mileage, but nothing near what I'm already getting with the Metro. (albeit hard to know precise mpg's; see my other post in off topic tech)
Great to get involved in this community of fellow effeciency gurus!
Dodge: 14 mpg Avg. Toyota: 20 mpg Avg Metro: 40ish Avg
and i paid a whopping 750.00 for it
