Yeah, Mazda = short (zoom zoom) gearing.

I run taller than standard size tyres on my Astina to compensate a little bit.

Mgb- Get some fuel!!!
Lol

Wow we are now down to 2 active cars...
Coming off winter I hardly drove my little car so I understand. My winter tank was a terrible 24mpg but things are looking up. First tank for this spring was 28mpg, not bad for driving the car like a sports car, have a good spring.

I need to stop letting others drive my car....
If someone else drives it they put in the fuel they used and forget to tell me how many gallons they put in

UG showed 27mpg, and after may 9th i no longer have to drive to school(city driving) so my mpg's will go up

I just re-joined, since we are now allowed to have a vehicle on multiple teams. Hopefully, my fuel economy isn't too embarrassing for a 3351 lb car.

Team Mustang of course is number one! I still follow this team, here (obviously), but I find myself joining Team Ford first.

i will not take this old sucker out when there is salt on the roads.

I stopped keeping track of my mpg because I fill up once every 2 months, but I don't think I'd do the team much good with my ~30mpg average lol. Those 2 mile grocery runs kill the tank average. Running the engine ice cold means ~23 mpg even going slow and not braking. I realized that if I had a gas guzzler instead of this car, I probably wouldn't notice the dent that the extra fuel makes in my wallet, so I kind of stopped caring.
