96 to 98 there was three drive set ups that i know of....

1.0L 5sp manual Compare Old and New MPG Estimates
1.3L 5sp manual Compare Old and New MPG Estimates
1.3L 3sp auto Compare Old and New MPG Estimates

the auto trans as far as gearing goes is about like a ford C6 or GM T400 3 speed trans. theres no O\D and no converter lock up
1st is WAY tall 3rd is WAY short and your in 2nd when wide open.
thus the mpg of the auto is a sizable amount less then the manual trans versions.

this model is getting rare but it had the best mpg rating.

1 86 T\D trooper with rare GEN 3 rods TRANS FIXED NOW DD
1 86 4WD 5sp pup is 2.3L gas, but plan on 2.2L diesel repower

1993 sidekick my MPG toy, epa rating 26.
i get 29/31 with stock drive train.
