So I ride my bike 2 days a week to work and have a 40mile total commute. but on the days that I drive to work my goal is to get to work and home on a gallon of gas.

Awesome! Welcome to the forum!

Is this a stick shift or an automatic?

The only ones I remember having ever seen were fitted VTi. Not sure if the base ones had ever been available in my country.

I assume you probably already know this, but just in case:
You usually get better fuel mileage if you shift up more, keeping RPM's down and use more throttle to accelerate.
