Talking Traded My Jeep For A New 2009 Honda Accord!

Well I finally did it, I got rid of my 2005 Jeep TJ gas guzzler and bought a 2009 Honda Accord, 2.4L, 4 cylinder. The car states an EPA highway mileage of 30 MPG, but I think my hypermiling techniques are going to get much more out.

The car does not have a MPG meter though. Can someone point me to a good aftermarket meter or scanguage that will work with the Honda Accord?

I am also open to any other modification suggestions. The engine is small so I think I can easily block the front grill with no problem. Here is a thread that looks promising but it is not for my model year: http://ecomodder.com/forum/showthrea...vice-4048.html

Thanks!

Nope not a stick shift.

The 2009 Honda Accord Sedan in an automatic is still my favorite car though. I do secretly wish for a Honda Accord Coupe with a stick and the upgraded factory sound system though. But, I would want a little more resonance in the exhaust system as well.
