Default Need Advice on Buy Cheap/Fuel Efficient Car

So I am looking to buy another car and I want it to be as cheap as possible and also as fuel efficient as possible. I was looking at a Prius and the cheapest I could find was a 2008 that had 50,000 miles for 15 grand....I would prefer something around 9-10,000 bucks. I don't care what the car looks like I just need it to have great gas mileage...I hate having to fill my tank all the time! Was also looking at a scion IQ but was not sure how safe it is. Any suggestions on cars that might work for me?

If all you care about is fuel economy and price i'll just warn you you're going to have an incredibly boring car.

Motorcycle. 50+ mpg for just a few thousand dollars.

Get a geo metro and deck it the hell out with the left over $8000 in your budget!
