95 MPG at 65 MPH, Coefficient of Drag of 0.17

After hurricane Katrina destroyed a good part of the coast of the Gulf of Mexico, gas prices shot up and Mike Turner decided to modify his 1992 Honda Civic to make it much more fuel efficient. He was inspired by old super-aerodynamic experimental German cars from the 1930s, and using $400 of materials, he made the 95 MPG Aerocivic, a car that might not look good from all angles, but it beats the crap of even modern hybrids when it comes to gas mileage. We liked this project so much, we made a slideshow. Click on the image above or on the button below to see the photos.
