Re: 2003 Hch-i


You can do much, much better than 35 and possibly twice that if focus on modding the IMA system for FE and forget about pumping up the ICE.

Re: 2003 Hch-i

AATG is correct -- the clutch mod switch will work in the 2003-2004 model years of the MT HCH. I highly recommend that one. No other mods to the car need to be done in order to exceed 70mpg regularly if you are willing to work on your driving style and routes (longer is better than shorter), traffic (stop and go is TERRIBLE!), and vehicle condition (does it go into lean burn properly?) allow you to wring the max out of the vehicle.

Where are you located? What is your typical driving like in terms of distance, terrain, and traffic?
