    This morning while driving to the local coffee shop, I noticed that my 2001 Honda Insight's gage was reading 80 MPG. Gone 140 miles since I topped it off, and barely used a quarter of a tank.

    What's your MPG?

    04 PT Cruiser, and it's honestly to depressing to calculate how much gas I use.

    Does it have to do with it being a turbo, how I drive, were I drive? Probably a combination of all those things, so I just do what I can to not waste gas by driving like an idiot & making pointless trips, and try not to bitch about gas too much because it's simply one of life's many costs.

    My Dad has one and we love it. I drive it a lot during the winter and when I've got the dog and groceries to deal with. :) 

    It's a great car!

    Dont know for sure, using some quick and dirty math I figure I get around 24.8 MPG driving mainly highway but with traffic stopages. Its a 2010 Civic, so it's probably higher than that.

    We just bought a new 2010 Elantra late last year. It's supposed to get like 24 city/34 hwy, but it's more like 18 city/31 hwy. Not too pleased with the city mileage at all.

    Between 16-18MPG. I so want a Hybrid vehicle, tired of breaking the bank just to fill my tank half way.

    My Lincoln Town Car is suppose to get 17 mpg in town. But it looks like it is getting less mileage than that. Somebody told me it is probably the fuel injectors are dirty.

    My other car a 1998 Olds 88 gets around 24 in town. I drove it up to Northern Alabama last year and it was getting great highway mileage.
