A Honda owner decided that paying $20,000-plus for a hybrid wasn’t very practical, so he took matters into his own hands. Spending just $400, Mike Turner used aerodynamic body pieces to lower “his Civic’s drag coefficient to 1.7 — enables him to achieve 95 miles per US gallon at a constant 65 miles per hour.” click here for first picture in gallery.

Now I’m not suggesting that we should all go out an stick some hideous plastic appendages on our cars, but perhaps the car companies should spend a little more time making our vehicles more aerodynamic.
