    2002 Buick Regal with 3800 V6 - 29-32 mpg highway, depending upon terrain and 22 locally. It will go from Harrisburg, PA, to Vandalia, OH, on one tank of fuel.

    TDI VW...42 would be low. Has hit 50. If i turn on the grease and add it into the eqaution it calculates out to right at 80 mpg. This is all done with the waste veggi oil conversion on it.

    2003 Acura, 22mpg in city driving, about 32 on open road. If I drive like I've got an egg between my foot and the pedal I can up both those numbers by 2 to 3 mpg.

    '02 Pontiac Grand Prix GT. 140,000 miles on her, and she still gets 30 mpg with the cruise set at 70 mph on the interstate. 25 mpg local driving. These are summer numbers. In the winter it drops down around 20 mpg.

    I am surprised that everyone so far has only one vehicle. ALmost every house in my neighborhood has two or three. Perhaps spending all hat money on shooting limits the numebr of vehicles we can own.

    I have three:

    Porsche Boxster around 22 in town adn a bit better tahn 30 on the highway but uses premium fuel.
    BMW 3 series - ditto
    Mazda Protege commuting car. Just filled it last night with 9.8 gallons after going 342 miles. I don't have a calculator but it should be around 35 or 36. When it was new, in 1991, and didn't have 250,000 miles,
    it would get 42/43 on the highway.
    On a related topic, gas mileage has really been dropping lately in new cars. Nissan brags about its Versa hatchback getting 33 highway, whcih I don't think is that good for something no bigger than a shoebox. Shocking is a VW Rabbit which does around 20 city/27 highway.

    Jetta owners: If you have an automatic, have you priced a new tranny? $4500 + install. Most don't make it past 80,000, if it does, you have a good one. We have 185,000 on our auto and still going.....

    Sm, our gas here in Sacramento is running about $3.60 now and they say headed for $4.00 plus in a few weeks!
    Anyway, my 20006 Mazda6 (4 cyl) gets 32 on freeway and 25 around town. I pretty much baby it and keep the RPM's down. If the US can't keep the cost of oil down (damn environmentalists), we are in for a prolonged recession. We have lots of oil available off our Cal. coast but can't get it for fear of some creature getting dirty...pathetic. There should be a 50% surcharge for any member of the Sierra Club on gas! Fuel prices have to be killing the trucking industry.
