    How about a Jeep or Chrysler product? I have a new 200, very comfortable and good gas mileage. Had a Jeep Grand Cherokee before that, had almost 200,000 miles on it when I sold it.

    I’m currently driving a 2014 Nissan Versa with 450 miles on it. No problems yet.

    And I traded my Ranger Sport for a Ford C-Max Hybrid.

    Talk about an upgrade in mileage….LOL

    And yesterday I took it to Lowe’s and loaded it down with bricks for the spring back yard beautification project. Well, I had to make 2 trips but STILL used less gas.

    Pick up is great…if you want to burn the fuel.

    But my driving is less than 2-3 miles anywhere I need to go (I could walk if I were not so lazy) so most of the time it’s all electric.

    I did take one trip to Jacksonville and back. Started with a full tank (13 gals) and put 11.3 gals in it when I got back home. 458 miles today highway and town.

    I’m a Ford guy. But a hybrid (any brand my daughter has a Honda) is worth the expense.

    It’s a good idea that is become affordable people.

    Speaking of Model A’s, I always enjoyed watching Dad fire up the old jalopy. First he set the spark located just under the steering wheel, then the choke located on the dash on the passenger side, then get out and go to the front to crank it over, then when it fired or belched Dad would run like heck back into the cab to further adjust the spark, the choke, and the throttle until it fired to life, which it almost always did. I get into my Acura with the key component in my pocket, press the start button once and away she goes – every time, in any weather. The Model A’s were much more creative.

    My Mini Cooper Clubman is still going strong after 5 years. I bought the base model, no turbo or glitzy details. Great MPG and lively on twisty roads. :-)

    yep, “back in day” or in other words “before government regulation on greenhouse gases”.

    I had a vw in 1968 that got 40+ MPG as well, depending on how you drive it. I also had access to a 1968 Oldsmobile Starfire (red with a silver strip down the side mmmm mmmmm mmm) that I could burn a quarter tank in 30 seconds with. It WAS fast…..

    But burning fossil fuel is burning fossil fuel. If you were not using the fossil fuel for 50% of the time you drove then that is an improvement over a constant burn.

    Have you a link to an article on this miracle car?

    My kind of people. I live in the sticks and have a pickup for a variety of purposes, although my wife has a Chevy Traverse.
