Also, I've been driving a 2000 3-Litre model and we've managed over 25 MPG in it on multiple occasions with little stop and go driving, In hilly Pennsylvania so getting 31 MPG in a 2.4-Litre model sounds very close, And the EPA figures rate the 2.4 Litre model 1 MPG Combined higher than the 3-Litre model.
My father owns a 2005 Miles ZX40 kei van, it gets in the neighborhood of 157mpg or .02 cents per mile but its electric

The next best is a Ford Escape Hybrid which seats 7 if purchased in the right configuration, it gets 28-50mpg depending on how well you can drive

The 1968-1978 Subaru 360 Sambar kei van gets 30-50mpg

The very old Chrysler Mini vans came with an optional stick, they were good for the high 20's and low 30's if you were carefull.

Now if you want a new Chrysler van, sorry only Mitsubishi VW and Toyo vans came stick shift in any recent times
