Nope you cant do it.I was wondering if you could in the interest of MPG disable the supercharger.
I thought a pulley with a clutch like used on a AC unit and a switch to turn it of and on. on the highway it is not really needed and turing it off could help mpg.

There is really no difference in gas mileage from a N/A Car to a supercharged car. In fact myself, Lord Z & Doghouse all drove from Houston to Dallas (about 4 hours) together and Lord Z's N/A Exige got worse gas mileage than both my and Doghouses Supercharged Exige S's..
It's called the big picture.
I did - it's not only an awesome sports/track car it's trivial to maintain and fuel. Name another 4 sec car that even comes close to 30MPG on the highway (other than the Tesla). I'm about as anti gas-guzzler as they come - if we replaced all the SUVs on the road with Lotus's we wouldn't be paying over $4 for a gallon of gas and we even need to import any crude from the middle east... and the road would be much more safe. Everyone who buys a fuel efficient car helps - everyone - whether is a Lotus or a Prius - john.
