thats pretty impressive about the 1.8T perp. VWs "official" stats on that are MUCH lower from what i remember. 22 or so if i recall.

i used to get decent mileage out of my vr6. about 26 overall.

That really is jsut as expensive as having a car. For starters just to buya horse is almost as much as it is to buy some gas thrifty cars, then I'm sure you food bill is going to be just as much as you gas bill, then you have vet bills for your horse plus a place to keep it you'll have to build. big $$$$$

Sweet Tap Dancing Baby Jesus Christ It's Dogzira!!!!!! Eh.

I never knew that VW's got that good of mpg, thats incredible.


Mazda on the other hand sucks

2004 turbo Mazdaspeed Miata got 24mpg

2004 RX8 got 15mpg real time driving, that car is a fucking gas guzzler, you might as well get an SUV.

2004 mazda 6 like 24mpg, not that incredible.

their mini SUV gets the worst gas millage in it's class like 14mpg I think.

^^^^^ I do have to say that I would not like to be putting fuel in diesel car in this times. It's like 60 cents over regular.

Yeah TJ, I thought it would be much worse, totally surprised after we bought it.

And MPD, we have more in common than you might imagine, what with weed, gin and tonic (although I'm a Bombay man, myself), campfires and fishing. Of course any sane person loves all those things, but I don't think you'll ever sell me on the Grateful Dead...to quote Killclimb (I think?), I just can't handle that Jingle-Jangle, noodle music!

Now where did I put that bong...

Bikes aren't a bad idea. I used to ride a crotch rocket and consistently got 36mpg commuting to and from work, as well as weekend canyon runs. They are fun as hell, but also very dangerous.

I also had a little rice rocket Integra GS-R, that got 31mpg. But after 173k miles, burning oil, and a blown headgasket among other things, I had to trade it in for the Hybrid.

Filling up twice a month kicks ass.

Not that I plan on doing it, but I am curious of the process involved in it.
