If fuel economy is the primary focus, gassing it works out not that expensive once the government chips in.

is fuel econemy your main aim, or are you also after say looks, power, handling?

I know a decent exhuast made a vast improvement in my fuel economy, but that was on an old ef, i leave details up to the ba fellas on what works for them.

By the way welcome to the forum, and throw up a pic of the new wheels if you've got one for us to gander.

basically you cant really improve the economy in any noticeable way.....

you only effective option is LPG...

you could fit a gas injection for around 4.5K minus gov bonus and keep your current level of performance or fit a mixer system for around 2.5K and loose a bit of top end performance....

there is no magic bullit for economy or else manufacturers would have done it already
