Sorry no pics yet... But I just wanted you all to know that I just picked up the best ride I've ever had Its a 94 Geo Metro ! haha. First tank I got 57 MPG, for city and highway combined, You can't beat that... While my subi is down, I will be sporting this baby around. I just put in full synthetic, and advanced the timing 2-3 degrees ( As per instructions on a geo forum I am now I member of ), and it looks like I will be 60+ MPG this next tank! thats 660 miles from one tank of gas! At this rate I will pay off the $500 I spent for the metro in fuel savings in just a matter of weeks! Love my subi, but I'm lucky to get 200 miles out of my tank of premium.... my Wallet is loving this Pics to come soon.

Glenn.

Yeah I should be getting close to 8 MPG better than the Prius, haha. Not worth the 25k to me, I just spent 500 and should get many more miles out of this thing. I can rebuild an engine for 250 And tranny rebuild kits are around the same, so this should last me a long time.....

Yep, I was surprised to find them, there are a few. They love their cars, and instead of bragging about whp, like nasioc, they brag about MPG Most of them show the mpg under their name in their profile where we put our hp numbers here at nasioc One guy gets an average of 102 MPG from his metro per tank, that is pretty sweet haha

That is one guy. But there are a lot out there that are getting this and even better mpg out of their metro. You really don't have to try hard to get 75 mpg, and that is about what I plan on getting, I am not going to be all out crazy like the guys that get 90+ mpg.

On another plus side, with 4" wide tires snow will be no problem.
