Back in 1993 when fuel prices sky-rocketed in the US, Doug home converted his Geo Metro Xfi, which already did a very reasonable 56 miles per gallon, into a rather unsightly but undeniably stripped-down and highly economical 75mpg mutant machine.
By basically chopping off the right hand side of his car, Doug increased fuel efficiency by 34% while still maintaining a vehicle that worked perfectly well all year round. With fuel prices on the up again this eco-mobile has come out of mothballs once more and is doubtless turning heads and wrinkling brows all over New England.
I wouldn’t mess with your Ferrari but if you’ve got an old banger lying around and an angle grinder, it might be worth a crack. They will mock but who’ll be having the last laugh as you cruise by the queues at the pump?
