Ecomodders make fuel good to the last drop

Description: 

A series of pictures showing 'ecomodding' which is a practice to make modifications to a vehicle to make it more efficient. It's possible with a small amount of work and with inexpensive materials to greatly improve fuel efficiency. Turner spent $400 on hardware store materials including aluminum bars and sheeting; polycarbonate, corrugated plastic; screws; and pop rivets. Now he says he gets up to 74 miles per gallon in the summer. A Civic from that era might normally achieve an average of 33 miles per gallon.
