Your vehicle's MPG

Postby Goob » Tue Jul 31, 2012 12:08 am

Self explanatory. If you have a car, golf-cart, moped, half-ton, or motorcycle post your average mpg of that vehicle. If you drive multiple vehicles, post the mpg of the vehicle you drive most, then talk about the others below.

(mine is probably the worst :lol: )

I drive a 2003 Chevy s-10 zr2. It has a 4.3L v6 turbo in it, and on a good day I may get around 9-10 mpg highway. The whole truck has 85000 miles on it. This was a special order by the previous owner whom I bought this from. Massive 32 inch (I think) offroad grade tires, with the 2 inch zr2 lift. 320 hp Vortec engine; carbureted. We have recently removed the catalytic converters from it which improved the hp. On a full tank of gas I can go for a good 350 miles.

I also drive a golf cart that gets 60 mpg. E-Z-GO 2 cylinder. Custom $1,900 paint job with a 5.5 inch lift on 22 inch tires.

Just saying stuff like that.

I'd love to see a pic of your golf car! Sounds great!
We just did up an old Dodge truck, put a Cummins engine in it. I think it runs about 15l to the 100. (sorry, metric - too lazy to convert right now) anyway, we are pretty happy with it.
We have numerous other cars, but I'm not quite sure of the feeding frenzy of those at the moment.

I drive a 15 passenger Chevy Express... Around 10 mpg in the city and 14 on the highway. Blech. It's a guzzler.

How far can you go on a full tank?

Well, it can hold up to 26 gallons, I believe. So I guess between 260 and 364. My grandparents drive a Prius, and I'm so jealous!

A motorized vehicle is anything with a motor and wheels. Not just a car! :)

I drive a 2001 Chrysler Town & Country LX. It has a V6 and can really haul if it needs to, but it's exponentially better on gas than my mom's Ford Explorer (14MPG, lol). It gets about 24MPG on a good day. There's currently an exhaust leak that needs to be fixed. Once that is done it'll be back "up to speed" :lol:

I also have a 2008 Mitsubishi Eclipse. I'm not sure of the MPG but it's better than the van. My parents can drive it back and forth to work for about 2 weeks without filling it up. I wish I could do that with the van!

I can go for a good 3 weeks of moderate driving too. However, my gas tank is MASSIVE. It's around 50 or so gallons. I almost got a ticket because it's too loud. I have Flowmasters on it, and it sounds beautiful. Hopefully no one will ticket me for driving without catalytic converters.

We have a 2007 Hummer H3. We average 17 to 19 MPG. I'm always looking for ways to improve mileage even though it isn't terrible for a big heavy truck. So far I've opened up the exhaust and put on glass packs, next is going to be a K&N complete air intake. We have 33" tires so that doesn't help the mileage but they are great off road.
