    So I see all these ads on TV for these vehicles that get the "best" gas mileage and it got me to thinking. We keep track of what mileage we get out of our vehicles, and while some are obviously MUCH better than others - it also got us to thinking that even with our 9 year old car, it still gets better gas mileage than some cars of todays standards.

    Ours:

    2000 Dodge Intrepid: 26-28 mpg hwy / 22 city

    2002 Crown Vic: 26 mpg hwy / 22 city

    2005 Honda Civic Hybrid: 48 mpg consistently

    2007 Ford F250: 15 mpg hwy / 13 city *ouch, but its a big truck*

    1969 Dodge Charger: 8 mpg LOL!



    So what does your vehicle(s) get per gallon?

    Quote:I hear ya! WOOT for being paid in full! All of ours are as well except for the newest edition (Crown Vic [​IMG] ) as the Intrepid is on its way out... [​IMG] it will be paid off soon though.

    I commute 75 miles, one way, five days a week. I started with a 2001 Jeep Cherokee, which averaged about 19 mpg. Now I have a 2006 VW Passat, and I'm averaging at least 32 mpg. The Passat now has 120,000 miles on it. My husband's 2001 Ford F150 gets about 11 mpg! But his commute's only about 9 miles.

    I have a 2006 Scion xA, I get about 34 in town and if I drive it right, around 36-38 on the freeway. Driving this car 'right' means no heavy acceleration and not going over 60 MPH. I don't drive that way. [​IMG] But I still manage to get between 32-34 MPG on the freeway.
