Let the games begin, 1994 Toyota Tercel

Bought this baby for $250, currently gets 31 MPG combined, not in the best shape mechanically, bad tires, bad air filter, bad alignment, probably a lot more than i can think right now since the car was sitting for 5 years.

Goal is to get to 40MPG right now but eventually go upto 50MPG if that's even possible.

Bald tires are good for low rolling resistance! Now get those tools out!

Welcome to the site. The Tercel is a great little car. I still have my 93 sitting in my driveway. Unfortunately it hasn't seen the road in years now.
