Good Photos...amazing how much larger the PA is next to the Impala.
I remember the older imps they were full side sedans! The newer imp has the 3.4 and gets about 28 on highway...My last trip hwy in the PA I was getting 34 mpg in the mountains. (maybe 20 in city)
How is Lauren'* doing on fuel economy? Looks good!

she has the 3.8 just like my car. fuel economy is about 25 city, where my car get about 22. thats with me driving 25 miles to work and 25 back, with 24 lights each way. and ive been riding the impala hard. jackrabbit starts at almost every light. im really impressed with how much quicker it is with the same engine and trans but with wayyyy less weight. lol

the 3400 gets from 33-36mpg all highway and about 30 mixed rural two lane. the only time you go all the way down to 28 is if you have a ton of hills or city
