BonneMeMN is on a distinguished road

My '93 couldn't touch the ol' 88 Nova (Corolla) in highway MPG. I did 40 once freakishly in this car.

Keep in mind a 98ish Civic would be a lot better then a 20 year old car that needs work too

A more efficient 4 cyl with a manual tranny in a lighter car will get great mileage, especially because they're setup for it with gearing, etc..

And respinS, that'* a lot beter then my mileage book I keep on the bonne...

Ford Focus, Taurus, and Mercury Sable. Those are the first ones to come to my head. All three are reliable and are not gas guzzlers. I originally wanted a Taurus or Sable, but ended up with the Bonneville (which I'm very happy about)

I do mostly highway:

That'* 27.01mpg to date. MPG is getting better as the weather gets warmer, but it'* still pretty crappy.

Granted, I could use new plug wires and a distributor cap/rotor, O2 sensor, etc, but quite frankly this car isn't worth enough to even justify that.

I'd really like a granny-geared beater-Bonneville right about now.

So YOU have one of those too? Ill have to post mine sometime.... many many pages long.

Pretty handy wouldnt you say?
