Welcome to the forum! There are a ton of things that you could do to improve your cars looks and performance. As far as milage goes just take it easy on the gas pedal and you should be golden.

Welcome to YC! Glad to have ya aboard. From Vegas huh? I was there from 1998-2007. I was known as MazdaSpeed Dave, lol. I know a few good places and few cool people to talk with while your in Vegas. I think Ed from Acme2 Motorsports might be there, Dana and Jack from Virtual Works, and Dennis from LDL Speed Shop. Just a few heads that are cool.

Far as getting more MPG, check out the mods and owners lounge to see others rides and what they got for increasing more MPG. I just have a air box resonator gone and K&N drop in filter, gets 29.4MPG City (being easy on the pedals and shifting at 2200rpms).

2009 Cobalt LS XFE U74
Mods: K&N Typhoon Intake, Option Cat-Back Exhaust, Cosmo Short shifter, Maxxim Ahead 17X7's, MPx shorty antenna, FE5 Strut/shocks, Tein S Techs, Moog endlinks, Moog spring seaters, ZZP shorty header, LSJ downpipe, LNF front grille
