OT - super high mileage cars

This may be a little OT since it's not specifically Hyundai related, but interesting to car owners none the less. One design option talked about is
replacing side-view mirrors with cameras connected to LCD's inside the vehicle to reduce drag. I wonder how much of a difference that would make to gas mileage? Currently is such a mod too expensive to be practical?

That depends on your budget. Small video cameras are pretty cheap, as are 7" video monitors. However, current law mandates rearview mirrors, so you'd never be able to get the car inspected and if you removed the mirrors between inspections, you'd probably get stopped by the police frequently.
