Just a quick update. As you may know, I sold my XFi on Ebay. Was going to drive my SW until my 97 3cylinder Project is done, but at 17.5mpg I couldn't do it. I purchased a 1989 Suzuki Swift GTi and may be selling the wagon instead. I won't have any MPG/Gaslog for a little while, but did post some pics/info in my garage...http://www.gassavers.org/garage/view/219
...Won't be a fuel sipping XFi, but a far sight better then the Taurus Wagon (and a hoot to drive! ). Will establish a base line under normal driving conditions prior to any mods.
Oh man, that is a super awesome car! I want it so badly. The only thing that i heard is kind of a buzz-kill is the shift from first to second. Apparently the second gear is too tall. Ill be getting one ASAP tho.
