Rockford is on a distinguished road
Default What is the average MPG

I never thought about it much until i lost my 92 bonneville and am now forced to drive a ford taurus, Anyway what is the average MPG these cars got, i wanna say mine got between 35 and 40 to a gallon i used to put 20 in it and go to work and back twice and out to medina and back, my drive to work is 40 miles each way and medina is 54 miles each way. Now with this stupid ford 20 bucks will get me to wolk and back maybe. And just if your wondering gas prices were still high when i had the bonneville.

Anything from 25-30 would be considered normal for the L27, L36, and L67. In stock or mildly modded form.

The ratings for all various bonneville over the years fall in the 16-20 mpg city, and 25-29 Hwy...

You should at least fall into this area.... If you don't you may have soke other issues...

I would lock this thread, but for now I'll leave it alone...
