New to the party.

Ok, so new to this ecomodding. To be 100% honest, it is the complete opposite of what I normally do, which is try to get as much horsepower and torque as possible, and not worry about fuel consumption. I know, I know, shame on me... But Hey, we all have to start somehwere.
I am getting a 93 Civic DX Hatchback, and will start getting it on the road over the next few weeks. I will be using ideas and info from this forum, so looking forward to communicating with a lot of you.

Efficiency is performance. You're trying to get as much horsepower and torque as possible from every gallon now instead of every cubic inch, is all.
It is hard to get used to, though.

Same idea as speed racing, but with different priorities. :-)

Thx for the welcome guys. Looking forward to starting my new journey here. Should have the car to the house in a few days, and will get started getting her on the road first.
