If you were closer to Muscatine you could park it at my place. It won't be covered, but it'll be out of your way.

I get about 30mpg as a daily driver, this includes city and highway. Straight highway, I get around 33. Mine'* a 3-speed automatic DOHC. Before you comment about that not being so great, keep in mind that the Silverado and the K1500 get 8mpg and 13mpg, respectively.

I drove neons as rentals and they did not seem that great on gas too me. 30 mpg is pretty good specially for the dohc version.

Mine'* a particularly well-cared for one, and I'm careful to take care of regular maintenance. It'* relatively babied, since it'* an older car (161,000 miles as of this morning) and we'd like it to last as long as possible. I'm able to get the MPG of an SOHC, without the additional power loss. I realize that "power" and "Neon" don't belong in the same sentence, but there'* a major, noticeable difference between DOHC and SOHC.
