Aerocivic – green modded Honda Civic

Darin writes –

Photos & details of a 15 year old Honda Civic, radically aerodynamically modified for increased fuel economy. The owner reports coast-down testing indicates the co-efficient of drag has dropped from .34 to .17 – better than GM’s ill-fated, and super-slippery EV1 electric car. With fuel economy instrumentation, the owner claims “Approximate mileage on a flat road at 85F … 85mpg at 70mph”.
