Looking for a car... ~14 MPG is not enough for me in my GMC Jimmy. I will probably get something that costs under $3000 since I'm a student and poor, most likely a Honda... so I wanted to see what my options are... What do you guys drive (year and model), what did you pay for it, and how many MPG do you get? List pro's and con's also.

For example:

1: Paid: $2600

2: 1999 GMC Jimmy

3: ~14 City/18 Highway

Pros: Very spacious, rides smooth

Cons: Gas *****, lots of road noise

Got rid of this almost 3 years ago and haven't had anything since that fits in your price criteria:

1990 Saab 900 hatchback non-turbo 5 speed manual.
Paid $5500 in mid-1998 with 65k miles.
Got avg 21 city / 27 hwy.

Liked: Very comfortable ride with very good handling and road feel. Heated seats were nice. "Love it or hate it" styling (obviously, I loved it). Phenomenal winter handling.
Disliked: Speakers are 4" dash and 4x10 rear. Luckily, I was able to mount a pair of 6x9's on the rear cargo cover which made one hell of a difference.

holy ****! lol ...we bought the same car for $200 with a european engine though. Was in the family of the people who own coca cola and they had it shipped from germany. Has all the maitenence logs from germany. Only thing wrong with it is a couple broke hoses. Had 200,000 miles on the body and a new engine put in it. AND GOT 25 MILES/GALLON

Nice! Mine was black with tan interior and the SPG whale tail spoiler and rear brake vent package (very rare and quite off for a non-turbo). Completely pristine inside and out when I bought it.

I'll never say the pre-GM Saab's aren't tanks....when mine was rear ended and in the shop, I was given an '87 900 turbo with mostly highway 727,000 miles on it as a loaner. It never had any major engine or drive train work in it's existence (owner of the shop I took it too was a Saab master technician and was certified in repair, parts, and sales), and had the service record to back it up. Bought it from a traveling salesman from the east coast that drove himself everywhere. He wanted to get it over 1 million miles, which would have been a first for a US driven Saab.

3: ~15 City/ Never taken it out on the highway to get Mileage

Pros: Plenty of room, Very quiet and smooth ride, fun to take on the beach

Cons: I'm still making payments on it, other than that I love it. The gas doesn't bother me too bad, I burn about a tank a week. At $3.50 here it costs $50-$55 to fill up.

1991Brougham
04-29-2008, 02:09 PM
1991 Cadillac Brougham with the 5.7 (350) LO5 V-8

Has hit for as high as 27.2 MPG on the highway with A/C compressor off. Driven under worst possible conditions, which means A/C compressor on and engine cold, 11 MPG in town.

Comparable cars: Chevrolet Caprice, Buick Roadmaster, Olds Custom Cruiser (station wagon).

Engines found in these body styles: 5.0 Olds, 5.0 Chev, 5.7 Chev LO5, 5.7 Chev LT1

The LT1 has the highest rated HP and will do 140 in a 1994-96 Fleetwood but you need to take off the fender skirts if you go 120 MPH or higher...LOL!

The 5.0 Olds is the least satisfactory engine of the bunch but there was a ton of them made in the 80's, so finding parts is not a problem. The 5.0 Chev had a short production run in the Broughams (91-92) and it's almost as good as the 5.7 LO5. The 5.7 LO5 is a decent engine for durability and was used through 1993 in GM full-sized cars, with that engine being supplanted by the 5.7 LT1 in 1994.

The LT1 is the engine that powers the Impala SS's from the 1990's.

For a car that weighs in a bit over 2 tons, they get fine MPG on the highway and they burn regular unleaded as well. When GM downsized their big cars starting with the 1977 models, the big engines were the 425 (Cadillac) and 403 (Olds, Buick, Pontiac) and they were hooked into a 3-speed automatic (TH400/TH350). By the time we get to the last of the breed in the 1990's, the combination of mid-sized V-8's, automatic overdrive transmissions, fuel injection and computer drivetrain management made for a car that got in the high 20's for MPG. The reliability of these cars is high. One thing Detroit knows how to make well is large cars, trucks and vans.

Buy a cheap bike, keep your other ride for when you need to haul people/stuff or for ****** weather days

I have been debating on getting a bike. My fiance thought up an idea yesterday. We have been thinking of getting her a new car or keeping hers and me getting a bigger one as my little Focus ST (Which I love by the way!) is just too small to haul around the family. So she goes, since my credit ***** and yours is good and I make more than you (thanks bish!) maybe you can get the car and let me drive it and you get a bike and drive my car. She has a 98 LTZ Lumina loaded, but needs more work to it.

So been thinking of actually buying a bike and even though about those Buells and just driving her car to work and what not.

Decisions!

Unbelievable. I bought a Dakota instead of a Ram partly for fuel mileage, partly due to a 3000 dollar price difference. It never ceases to irk me to hear that I do about the same as, and in some cases worse than, alot of Rams.

I'm averaging mid to high 14s most of the time, high 12s or 13s in the city, high 15 on the highway. I've seen as low as 12 during really cold winters. The best ever was high 18s on a long highway road trip with cruise set at 56 mph while treating the gas pedal like there was an egg under it. Second best was high 17s with the cruise at 65 coming back home.

Won't be trading it anytime soon despite gas prices because I like pickups and its paid for and well cared for. Conserving is nice but I think people who trade guzzlers for a financed newer car and take on another 3-5 years of higher payments to save 1-200 bucks per month on gas and then go on about how much money they're saving in the long run are financially dumb.

05 F350 diesel average about 16 mostly country roads, and get 18+ when I get on the highway

Pros: can carry 6 people comfortable and haul a good 1,000lbs in the bed while towing a 12k trailer, and takes quite a bit to get stuck

Cons: takes 40 acres to turn around, diesel is at $4.90/gal in my area

Past vehicles

93 Plymouth Acclaim, 4 banger, averaged about 18/23

Pros: Small durable car, plenty of leg room and roomy interior

Cons: a samll car, not enough power to get out of its own way, no overdrive, too low and too slow

83 F250 straight 6 15 around town and 12 or 13 on the highway. Yes, it got worse milage on the highway, between the 4.10:1 gears out back, a low reving big displacement 6 cylinder and no overdrive made the thing scream when traveling anything more than 50mph.

Pros: Heavy suspension (carry 1500lbs of concrete and just barely level out) manual tranny :) classic feel

Cons: Rode like an empty dump truck, plenty of torque but no horsepower, only 2wd

Cons: Takes Premium, isn't very large, can't "play" with it and still expect to get decent mileage. It's a pain in the *** to work on the sound system, and there is little room to put a box in unless considerable cargo space is sacrificed.

Yeah. I remember filling up in Stuttgart a few years ago. Out on the economy, it was rediculous.

But then again, Germany has KILLER public transportation. It's a two way street.

Question? Did you get your computer recalibrated for the 17's? Toyota told me that it needs to be done going to larger rim so your mileage and your speed reads correct. Reason I ask is I can't get anything close to your MPG's in my 07 Yaris. Best I've ever gotten is 36mpg. What was your mpg before rims?

I don't drive that crazy and only do about 70mph on highway. I use synthetic oil and take care of it and don't have much in the car as for weight. Is there some secret to getting this car to do that high? Please share.

2004 Dodge SRT-4, I can get 30mpg if I keep it out of boost..if I drive agressively it goes down to bout 23mpg.

It runs about $35 to fill up (must run premium 93 octane):mad:

*as reference* when I bought it brand new back in '04 it only cost me $15-$18 to fill up it's 12 gallon tank.

It's just a neon but it gets good mpg and is still got plenty of power. Trying to fight back the impulse to order a '09 Challenger. :rolleyes:

In the non winter months I drive an 84 Cutlass Supreme with a mostly stock 74 350 Rocket, O/D trans and 2.56 gears. I've gotten up to 25mpg on a straight highway trip doing a steady 70mph. Normally in mixed highway and city driving it gets around 18-20mpg. When I had the 3.73 gears in it it got about 18-20mpg all the time.

My winter beater is an 83 Delta 88 with the 307 and O/D trans and I've gotten 28mpg highway with it back in the summer when I first got it. Now it's getting around 20 in mixed driving.

Question? Did you get your computer recalibrated for the 17's? Toyota told me that it needs to be done going to larger rim so your mileage and your speed reads correct. Reason I ask is I can't get anything close to your MPG's in my 07 Yaris. Best I've ever gotten is 36mpg. What was your mpg before rims?

I don't drive that crazy and only do about 70mph on highway. I use synthetic oil and take care of it and don't have much in the car as for weight. Is there some secret to getting this car to do that high? Please share.


07 Toyota Yaris Around 35mpg highway or city.

My friend who happens to live in Morton Grove has a 06 Yaris hatchback etc. He said he gets 39 mpg. Bone stock rims / car.

Usually true because a 4 banger will need to do a lot more work to get it rolling opposed to not doing much in a 6 cylinder that has so much more torque.

Which motor does it have the 5.4L gas, 6.8L gas, 6.0L diesel, or 7.3L diesel?

0MPG, 1994 GMC Sonoma 2.2L 5Spd.
Mainly because I've had it since April 2008, and its been driven about 1 mile since I got it. It is my project truck, so thats probably why.

Love that motor. Almost bought myself an '07 F250 Outlaw Edition. Any mods to the motor?

I'm glad you said that. I'm looking at an '04 F250 with the 5.4L, and it gets around 14MPG fully loaded without any haul.

It's got a 4" exhaust..I think magnaflow.

It's definately a beast.

My camper was around 15,000lbs and it pulled it like a champ over some 12,000 foot peaks.

I can get 16 out of mine, but that 15,000 lb camper puts a teeny dent in economy.

My previous car in this thread was a Dodge Durango that got 9-10 MPG.

I'm now driving an Acura CL type S that's getting an average of 25.
