    I get just under 18 with my Jimmy.../forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif and it weighs 6300 lbs and rolls on 40's.

    Plus diesel is still a fair bit cheaper than gas here.../forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    I was getting 15mpg (highway) with a 1.6L Tracker. It was unreal... passed emissions testing just fine. Might have had to do with the 5.13 ratio and 26" tires /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif It ran at 4500rpm in OD just to keep up with highway traffic. Gassed up 3 times a week /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

    yeah it has a 1.8L isuzu whith a 380cfm webber and an aluminum intake. Most datsuns from the same era only 18mpg, my buddies 75 datsun only gets 15. I told him to throw a 350 in it becouse he wouldnt loose econimy. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
