    That's what I got mine for, the fuel economy. Can't beat the 36 mpg I'm getting in it, (especially with the ~150 mile round trip commute everyday) even if I do look like a gorilla driving a mini cooper...

    It does have a little pep to it when you get on it, for only having about 88 HP..lol I still miss DD'ing the Mark VII though, no comparison there.
    FOXLESS!!
