I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.

Here we have a 45hp diesel that will fit in a eco car, you just need to increase the spring rate a few 1000lbs and a few dozen other small modifications before this Motor is ready to rock the 21st century.
