I'm curious, what MPG or L/100 km do you people get with your cars/trucks/ etc.

City / highway / combined - whatever.

My Mazda Tribute gets about 21 around town, 30 on the highway. My wife's diesel VW is getting 37 MPG around town. Looking darned attractive especially since with the last two price increases for gas, the price of diesel hasn't moved.

For us Regular unlead is now $1.14 / litre while diesel is $1.01. Cheaper and better mileage.

'92 Pathfinder--18 mpg city, 22 highway (that may go down since we bought a pop up camper this weekend)

'03 Mini--28-30 city, 36-39 hwy (depends on who drives--my wife goes a little hard, I think)

'95 Yamaha YZF 600--approx. 40-45 mpg combined

We drive/ride very little, though. I'd be surprised if we averaged 50 miles a week among all the vehicles.

05 Kirk Frameworks Custom--36 miles per bowl of cereal with soymilk and 3-4 fig newtons. This vehicle gets more action than all the rest, by a decent margin, I'd say.

95 Acura Integra w/ Rack -- 32 highway. Don't know around town, 'cause that's when the fiance is behind the wheel.

94 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4 -- 15-17 highway, 13 or so around town. This is why it's been sitting unused in my carport for two years now. That and the no A/C, no radio, no dashboard, passenger window that don't move, and so on. . .

83 Yamaha 550 Seca -- 32 around town, 48 or so on the highway.
