I’m gonna day it now, find a Saturn. A manual SW (1 or 2) should give you the mileage with just tire pressure and hypermiling... an LW200 with manual trans should get you close, but will require diligent hypermiling and skilled use of pulse and glide driving style, due to its 4.45 final drive transmission...

In any S series watch the oil consumption(they all will use some) and watch for the timing chain oiler/tensioner in the L series

And Saturns, being orphans of the mother brand (GM) don’t hold value worth crap so you could find a quite nice one for almost nothing
