If you can do the transmission swap finding a 4 speed out of a Pony is probably the best bang for your buck. I drove an '88 Pony until it had 518K miles on it and very seldom did the mileage drop below 40 MPG. When it did I was looking for the problem. I was driving it to work at one time that was a 65 mile drive each way and included about 45 miles of interstate each way where I usually had the speedometer hand buried to what I suspect was 90-100 MPH and still was able to break 40 MPG consistently. Once on a longer trip I tried to stay as close to 55 MPH as I could and managed to get 50 MPG out of it. I've still got the '88 sitting in my yard, wish that transmission was in my '94 LX.
