O.o If making your car loose weight got you more than 2% per 100 pounds my car would be STRIPED

But I want to keep the cars value if I ever decide to trade it in for something 28+ MPG I could get something for it

I seriously get eager..

you know you are an ecomodder when the kink dent in the rear bumper has thoughts of wind...

(I finally may be recovering from a hit and run six months ago soon!)

YKYAEW: Your tempted to buy that CHEAP smart for two on ebay. Even though it needs an engine rebuild, (and its a semi-auto, and the steering wheel is on the wrong side) so you have an efficient car for a summer road trip..

You know you're an EcoModder when you're seriously considering driving half way across the state with an uninspected truck and a tow dolly just so you can have a 5 cylinder diesel engine instead of the smaller, non-turbo, less efficient 4 cylinder version.

And you're hoping the person accepts a $250 offer for the whole car, because you just can't afford anything more than that.
