Need help with stickers for the wheel skirts

Okay I'll be festuning the car with a few stickers so I want some input.

The first will be homemade, and removable. I'm looking for design suggestions. The wheel skirt sticker parameters are, It must say "50 mpg" in large letters. I think I want it to also say something like "hybrid eater" underneath in smaller print, maybe similar to italics. It will be printed on white background. I almost stenciled it with white paint but I can never get them to stick right and paint runs everywhere under the stencils.

I also need a reference to on the car rear. Is it okay for me to print my own?

lovemysan -

I'll use your thread as a segueway to offer one option. The example I am using is the butt of a Lexus GS :

I chose the Lexus because it already has nice "GS" lettering. In this case, the GS stands for "GasSavers". For your sedan, you could keep changing the numbers as you up your MPG. If you had a "" sticker in your rear window, I think people would learn to get the "GS". I have a plastic hatch and alot of plastic behind the hatch, so changing the MPG numbers is hard for my wagon (but still doable, as I sit here thinking).

The key is finding a good set of (pre-existing?) 3D letters to put on the trunk. However, Honda Civics used to just be flat cheesy stickers (saved weight on the VX, right? ). so you *could* keep updating the numbers sticker, ala McDonalds.

What's your EPA MPG?
