Hello, all. I've been lurking for some time now and finally decided to register. I hope I can improve my economy with the help of this wonderful forum. My car is a 2005 Subaru Legacy 2.5i. I bought it new almost 4 years ago. I could have bought the GT (turbo) but the economy was 5 mpg lower and the chance of me getting a ticket was too high. I don't want to modify the car but hopefully change my driving habits. Looking forward to all the knowledge I'll be getting from the members here.

Welcome to EM! Years ago I made the same choice with a CRX. I could have got the SI, but I chose the DX. My master plan was to get the SI "someday". But Honda tricked me and stopped making the CRX!!!!!!

But, truth be told, I don't think I would have ever got an SI.
