Well put lots of stickers on it where everyone can see. Put small little skinny tires on the front for better aerodynamics. You can also replace all of the bolts in the jeep with either zip ties or duct tape. But what is usually the easiest is to tell the fat chicks to get out. Another mod to help with mpg is to just add the biggest spoiler you can find, because that's what all of these so called hybrid cars have. I hope these will help.

Also, remove the rear drive shaft so that all the power goes to the front. Every one knows that real fast cars are front wheel drive.

Also..... when I took out the rear drive shaft, it will not go any where at all..... is that supposed to increase my mpgs???

You have to drive in reverse, the counter rotational forces combined with the centrifugal forces of the inline rotary counterparts will in turn triple gas mileage. However, this can ONLY be done AFTER you fill the gas tank with urine from an armadillo or a raccoon.

Oh, and spray it with nitrous.

Throw her in 4wd at about 6000rpm in gear. It'll go or it'll blow!
