Darin is already getting 62mpg, but a xfi should get 70mpg with the same mods. I think with some engine tuning and maybe the whole underbody covered it's possible.

What "engine tuning" do you refer to?

I still wonder how you charge the battery with no alternator.

Charging: the last 2 weeks: solar (15W 12V panel). If I drove more often, I'd have to get more solar capacity, or use a charger like XFi is.

Just imagine what you could squeeze out of it with technique on top of the mods...
Exactly.

with better tuning of the timing, some cams, and a/f I could totally see 5mpg on any car.
