You got a nice collection of microcars there Even the CRX is small compared to the fit.

Hey I always wondered if anyone ever chopped a Scion xB - haven't seen one at all - would definately help the aero and there is plenty of head room as well as seat lowering ability.

When I put my scangauge, the speedo is off, engine size, and tank size.

I already calibrated the engine size. Once I start filling up I'll calibrate the speedo and the tank on the SG2

Thanks to your short gearing you can accelarate quicker and then cruise in 5th.

Yeah, the engine size is critical. My theory is that the SG doesn't actually know the amount of gas being injected. I think it derives the gas used based on the engine size and RPMs. That's what I think, anyway. My wifes 2003 Civic is a 1.5L versus my 1.9L, and it is easily 10 MPG greater than my Saturn without any effort. But where's the fun without any effort?

I think I need to set my gas tank correctly, though. That may be another input it uses to derive it's results.

PS - CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!! Sell more bumper stickers and pay it off ASAP!!!!!

I think that's Storm Silver.

Looks like 50mpg might be a little more work than I thought, but I still think it's doable. My driving today was around 39MPG (for all day), but I seem to get better MPG in the city due to slower speeds and various driving techniques.

I'd love to get an iDSI engine, but I'm not going to cross my fingers any time soon.

After accessories, taxes, DMV fees,and hidden dealer fees, it was around $18k. I was financed at 6.2%, so the payments are going to be okay.
