well so far I am saving about 0.70 cents per 100 kilometers with the yaris.
About 0.7l/100km, not a lot, but probably gets you 35-50km extra per full tank which no one can complain about.
In Japan, the hand can be used like a knife.
But this method doesn't work with a tomato...

can I put some salt bags in the trunk to close the wheel gap?
Well, if you do that, you'll need some salt bags on your front hood to have 50:50 salt weight distribution....

more weight will reduce mileage, why do you care anyways?

sorry, i was talking to the OP, he was saying his mileage is improved vs a corolla so i was trying to say weight will reduce his mileage part way back to the improved mileage reason he traded cars.

I sprayed the 3M clear shield on the hood, should have painted the whole hood.

The yaris is not perfect but saves so much gas than the corolla, I love it.
You get some Takata green race harnesses to match those rims!

I saw this old lady driving a yarns this morning going 70-80kmh on the 401. When I passed it she was leaning forward and looking over the steering wheel! How did she pass her test? Can bare see over the dash board for crying out loud.
