This would be my first post so please move it if its in the wrong place. I am in the process of trading my minivan for an 95' geo metro. I was curious as to running the metro at a higher compression and on 91 octane fuel. I figure if I can get a 6% increase in mpg and power then its worth the 6% extra cost at the pump. Has anyone done this? Would a xfi cam still work with this system setup or should I go with a custom grind? It is a standard 1.0L but I would love to put the xfi cam into it. I am aiming for high gas mileage but if I can get more power with the same gas mileage, I'd be okay with that too. I am a little clueless as to geo engines since I'm used to GM LS engines.

Also, any recommendations on what to look for when buying a metro. The one I'm looking at has recently welded a-arms, new rear brakes, and 164,000 miles. (it was owned by a auto-body shop owner)
