As I said earlier, different worlds. Did anyone actually buy American cars back then? The CRX was probably the mpg champ, or close, but the Honda Civics & similar of that era got in the 30s. Heck, I get over 25 mpg from my '88 Toyota pickup, which is 4WD, and usually driven on roads where 4WD is needed, and/or hauling loads of firewood &c.
