Pull 4 plugs and make it a V-Twin. Then you could get some saddle bags and you'd have a good reason to wear leather. Should be good for 50+ mpg...

Try to fit the 5.9L Cummins Diesel in your car and convert it to RWD.

Thank you.
That's the best idea I've ever heard! I'm going to try that on my car... maybe I can make it into an I-2, instead of an I-6, and I'll just turn up the boost! Extra MPG for meeeeeee!

I know this guy was joking. I think I have heard it all. For real for real.

There is no way. Thats like cutting off your mouth to keep you from overeating, since gluttony is a sin.

C'mon man. Stop playing.

dude if you put a 4-banger in a legend you will have pickup like a geo metro.
like others said you should get a different car if want something like this.but if you are serious about this you need one with a high amount of torque to pull the massive wait.4-bangers are not intended for this car as honda would have made them with 4-bangers if they were.i personally if i was in your position go buy a cheap decent mpg car for you to drive normally and keep the legend for a weekend car.

My moma said if you can't say anything nice dont say anything at all.... But i would make a suggestion. Go buy a frekin honda civic or a geo if you want good mpg.
