Wife can't drive

My wife had surgery and will be unable to drive for a whole month.

I will be able to use our Miata exclusivly. I may be able to use a full tank and get stats for it into the garage. It seems that stats are never recorded when someone else uses the vehicle. The one tank that was recorded was about 32mpg. This will be all city driving, but I'm still hoping for 40.

It would be sweet to see some good numbers on a Miata. I have always liked the car, especially that short throw shifter, but never heard much about MPG from them.

The hard part will be keeping the top up for better aerodynamics.

I bought the MIAZDA for her for fun. The numbers I get will be with the top down most of the time. I still think 40 is obtainable. LONG LIVE TOPLESS

"Wife can't drive"

I totally thought this thread would be about something different. :-)
