    Default Whose ride gets the best MPG here?

    I may be looking into getting a car with better MPG than what I get now.....what king of MPG do you get from your ride?

    Please let us know the make/model/year.

    I have a '98 Pontiac Grand Prix GT and I get about 25 MPG....

    I've got an '05 Mustang GT that hauls. Unfortunately I'm pulling something like 15 mpg in the city. But the 24 on the highway is pretty good. Don't believe what they tell you about city mileage for that car. Anyway, I'm actually looking into getting a moped to ride around town so that I can get 80 mpg.

    1998 Chevy Blazer with the Vortec V6. I get about 16-18 MPG around town and somewhere between 20 and 24 on the highway.

    BTW, thanks, Jimmy, for posting the Scion XB mileage. I'm thinking very seriously about getting one. How are you liking it so far? They had that great review in Guitar Player a month or so back about it and said it's a great working musician's ride...

    People need to let this go.....it is like comparing an ex wife to your current wife...you can say how things would have be different if she were still here but she left you, so you moved on with your life.....


    Same with Van Halen...would they have liked to have Roth stay, yes...but he decided to leave so they moved on.......

    and the rest is history….. well until 1996……..lol

    I am the same way with my GTO. I've only put about 500 miles on my truck in the last month. 700 have been put on the GTO, and it is cruising to Iowa this weekend. There's another 400-500 miles!

    You sure? I was thinking 20 city, and 30 highway. Especially with the GT. The "best-case" city rating on that vehicle is 23, but maybe you're beating it by a mile or two.

    I typically get 29 or 30 MPG highway w/ my Buick LaCrosse. 31 mpg on the way to Port Huron, for whatever reason.
