I am somewhat converted. I still have my "hotrod", but hardly ever drive it anymore. It is a fairly rare (1 of 2238) 89 mercury cougar xr7 3.8L v6 with factory intercooled supercharger and 5 speed manual (too bad it weighs close to 4000lbs ). I could actually probably get 30 mpg with it if I tried, maybe better. I had a tank at 27 mpg once without trying, but that was before I started modifying it for power. Since then it averages around 22mpg (which is actually good compared to the 18 mpg combined epa #). I haven't driven it since I joined this site. I should try it this spring since I've learned many good ways to save gas by driving techniques alone. I may just sell it.

I still drive my s-15 pick-up for haul'in stuff. I know I am getting better mileage than before I joined this site. I have yet to actually fill it up for real #s though. Speed kills FE for that vehicle worse than my metro .

I still drive a rare Honda Element - a 2004 EX Sunset Orange Pearl 2wd 5-speed (1 of about 300). Okay, okay, I guess it doesn't count as rare if I just chose a weird combination of options and colors and drivetrains...

Anyway, does the Element make me reformed or not? I traded in a 626 that got the same mileage but was slower and less useful...

Could you hose-out the interior of the 626? Exactly.

Actually, the Element should have fewer emissions if you get the same FE, so you're actually ahead...
