on top of the cold ac, almost no rust, smooth quiet running.. the little bastard gets 28mpg runnin around town..:D with a hitachi!!

i'm sure it'd get over 30 if it was all highway drivin..

just thought i'd share.. this little car has been great so far.. driven it all over the place.. its not big on power, or fast for that matter, but what can ya expect from a car that has 69HP..

if i get my wife a wagon, i'll just run it back and forth to work since the mileage is awsome.. and save the RX for my toy, hehe..

after cleaning the blower motor and air conditioning core out (mice fuz/stuffing/terds).. the heater and ac work like new as well..

That's great - the Hitachi's aren't really all that bad - mine did great before I switched to a weber. The Weber does better - but my friend has my old hitachi, and gets over 30 on his 2WD...

I think the EA81's were 73 HP BTW.

No, I didn't get around to post any pictures yet. The blurry "something" next to my username is the only one out there for now. I'll set up a website some time, hopefully soon. Then I'll invite everybody to admire! Or, I guess, I could just attach a couple of pics to a post...
Thanks for your interest.
