But seriously, my suggestion would be a Honda CRX HF or Civic CX
A CRX HF (High Fuel economy) model replaced the CRX with the 1.3-liter engine. The HF had an eight-valve version of the 1.5-liter engine that produced just 58 horsepower but offered more torque and thus better acceleration around town. Mileage figures for the HF stood at 52 in the city and 57 on the highway.
They're DANG hard to find, so you'll have to look a little harder than usual... Well, actually, they're fairly common, but they usually have a bunch of stickers and a coffee can tacked onto the exhaust
