Good luck. My last little 4cyl car got a little better gas mileage than my Ranger, but my Ranger hauls a lot more junk. Right now my truck averages 25-27 MPG so I'm pretty happy.

can still be great on gas...modified both my crx and del sol and had better power than stock and still had excellent fuel mileage... biggest reason i got my ranger is the idiots around here can't drive and didn't feels afe in such a small car... d-series.org is an excellent site ( though am no longer active there)
