Could get better, but living in Vegas I have it set to run very cold which kills it and the heavy wheels don't help.
Please help reduce our mini van population and wear condoms!

Rep: 96 Kenny McCormick will become famous soon enough

I chose 16-18, but I've seen months where it averaged out to 15. Not bad for something that old and that high mileage, eh?
Tired Iron ain't got no time to wear out...

My rigs:

1985 Ford F150 | 4x2 | 300ci OHV inline six | 4-speed OD manual | 310K | No power brakes | Running 100% - It hasn't driven this good in 15 years!

1984 Ford F150 | 4x2 | 300ci six | granny four | 3.55 rear end | 210K | Brakes shot. Rear drums are doing most of the work. Not fit to drive due to that.
1997 Ford Explorer XLT | 4.0L Vulcan V6 | 5-speed automatic | shift-on-the-fly 4WD | 210,000 miles | Running 95% - Needs brakes on all four corners + bald tires
1989 Ford F150 | 300cid six...again | 5-speed | 4x4 | 160K | Needs brakes done as well. Oi!

Rep: 64 S D will become famous soon enough

Last I checked my truck was sitting at 16 city/hwy average and my TC was close to 20 city average. And this is with hypermiling.

I miss my 240's anemic little engine. It could go a long ways on a little fuel.

1994 Honda Civic hatch Back
2.2l Dohc vtec 220hp 160ft/lbs of Torque
