I just Signed up today.
For some reason I purchased a 2005 Liberty a few years ago...I never really liked it, and only went off road with it a few times. Driving it at 55-60 I got a best mpg of 20.

My parents had a 1991 Honda Civic LX sedan in their driveway for 5 years, that they didnt use, that they were really anxious to get get rid of. I needed an Alternator, battery, tires and some suspension bushings, and I did the brakes just because.

I drive 32 miles one way to work. 50/50 city/hwy drive. At 60-65mph I could get about 36mpg out of my little civic. By not using the drive through (but still including going out for lunch, the bank, etc. ) and limiting my speed on the hwy to 55-60 MAX my real world mpg in the civic is 40.16 mpg!!!

I stay in the slow lane, but all the idiots here in suburban detroit in their f250's and escalades insist on tailgating me....must be jealous, or something.
