It’s the only way to sort weight carried from the vehicle itself.

Past payload, what’s the reference which matters? Two seats? Two-cylinder?

How does the MPG at 70 matter if there’s no common ground against which to judge?

If it can’t carry ones family + luggage, it’s not a car, it’s a joke fools play on themselves.

May as well ask how long a 650-mile trip takes. A current Mirage holds 9-gals. Refill at 80% at 40-mpg = 290/miles.

Means as I get 1/2 that number, but have 3X the fuel, I’ll roll past and arrive close to an hour ahead.

With a passenger & gear payload that requires 7-8 Mirage.

So, what’s the point of asking about MPG without a reference?

Taking the bus trumps all of them.
