One way to get better gas mileage is to choose the right vehicle for the job. And to save on gas, the right vehicle is the smallest, lightest, lowest horsepower and most streamlined one that can possibly work. Most local trips within a neighborhood don't need much more than a motorcycle. A Micro Car is essentially a motorcycle fitted out with a body. The resulting low weight allows for amazing gas mileage. For example, the Moonbeam introduced in the video gets 200 miles on a 2 gallon tank of gas. It uses only about 1 gallon per hundred miles! And if you only want to go ten blocks to visit a friend, it is absolutely perfect.
