1996 Mitsu Mirage S

Yeah, I am new to this site, but i havent seen anyone on here with one of these cars. I have owned mine for a few years and even if i beat the snot out of it only around town stop and go and dont do any of the things your supposed to do to save mileage, it gets over 30mpg. I have recorded in excess of 40mpg when consistantly driving on the highway. People should look into these miraculousely efficient cars if they are looking for a gas sipper.

I had to look it up...



I actually went & test drove one of these new. I don't recall the stats, but it seemed like a pretty lightweight machine, and the small motor with a stick should make for a good platform.
