I drive a 2000 camaro, 347ci with heavy nitrous injection. It has a 3 speed transmission with a 5k stall for drag racing, im here to learn how to get better gas mileage. currently it gets 6.4 on average, but it goes reeeeeeeeeeal fast!
Put that engine in the back (where it should be) of a sleek tube frame with appropriate fairing and OD (T56 with the .5:1 6th) gearing. ~700rwhp in a ~1400lb chassis will put you at an ~even power to weigh ratio.

If anyone wants to get better FE, we should be here to help them. Being rude is not going to plant the seed of change, it'll just make enemies.
I understand, but at the same time, we're talking about people who do things that are directly destroying their FE, then come on in search of better mileage and better emissions. It just seems to me alot like feel-good concern rather than actual concern.
I also happen to be involved in Earth First! though, so I do tend to be a bit more radical regarding such issues.
