  •  My 1997 manual Chevy Cavalier got 42 mpg. (0+ / 0-)

    And that was only because I was a newbie at driving stick--I learned on the Cavalier, to take it as a hand-me-down from my sis. Most other vintage Cavalier drivers, I found, got 44 mpg and up. It was a $10,000 car in its day.

    As for current cars, Mazda's SkyActiv technology gets you 40 mpg for the world's best car, the Mazda3. Which you can get into for well under 20k. The Cavalier was a bridge car between my Mazda 323 (the 3's venerable ancestor), which gave me 18 phenomenal years of service and my 2010 3, from which I expect--if I wish--another 18.

    Ho'oponopono. To make things right; restore harmony; heal.
