I drive a beat up piece of crap pick up truck and fill it up once a week. Sometimes, if I'm lucky, it lasts for two weeks. With the job I do, riding a bike wouldn't work. I have to drive. I don't really go anywhere outside of work, though, so that's about all it gets driven.

What type of car do you drive?
2001 Pontiac Grand Am GT (sedan)

How many cylinders?
3400 LA1 V6 (3.4L)
Interestingly enough, after the LIM fix under warranty - it's been quite reliable. HP not too impressive, but torque makes up for that. It can scoot faster than the neighbor's car with the big spoiler, fart-can muffler, and rice sticker. (The tires will break loose from a standing start before it gets anywhere near as loud.) For the two rare times I tested it, it even gets the speedometer to the full 120 while still having some to spare. Don't be worried though, I drive it pretty conservatively 99.8% of the time. I tend to chill out and go with the flow.

How many miles to the gallon?
23cty/32hwy - more towards the lower end of that scale. (But I have gotten that top value during road trips. Not bad for a V6. I've gotten the best economy on long drives by keeping it at 65-70MPH. The gearing makes 2100 RPM the sweet spot for economy.)

How often do you fill your tank?
Not very often, but you'll see why below.

How many miles a week do you drive?
Not enough. It's a car meant to be driven. Can't find steady work right now, so I don't waste gas if I don't have to. Shame though, since it's a good car despite its age. (Also Pontiac seemed to have a habit of saving the best for last. True for the G/A model, and perhaps true for the division as a whole. At least they didn't end it with cars that sucked.) Parked more often than driven at the moment.

If you are like me, and don't have/use a car, what is your preferred method of transportation?

I still have a car. But when the weather's nice, sometimes it's hard to beat the Alpha Aluminum Trek 7300 on local jaunts. (Able to do a good 20-30 miles per sammich.) For those odd times when I need to go to Chicago, Metra is definitely preferred. (Traffic and parking there are really that bad. It's often cheaper and more relaxing to take the train.)

I drive a 1500cc Honda Fit with an 80% increase in horse power by way of a supercharger with 10PSI boost and other modifications... It tops out at around 130MPH and gets as much as 34 MPG on premium (93 octane) fuel.... There are more power increasing, engine longevity and handling modifications to be done as parts arrive and I order or create more. I have driven it 34000 miles since July of 2006 when I purchased it new.

I'm not sure how to upload a pic of it but here's what I drive:

1966 Cheverolet Chevelle SS, it has the original 396 with an after market 4 speed tranny with 355:1 gears. I've added a Holley 750cfm and aluminum intake and believe it or not I still get around 16-17mpg depending on how much of a hurry I'm in, lol!

My wife has a 2009 Yukon Hybrid, it's pretty cool but I've always dug the older stuff.

What type of car do you drive?
1990 Chevy G-20 van

How many cylinders?
8, as in V-8

How many miles to the gallon?
30-40 mpg

How often do you fill your tank?
1 time monthly. more if needed.

How many miles a week do you drive?
100 or so, about 500 a month.

I should mention my van is highly modified, has a 40,000 volt MSD ignition system, the ECM is hacked and has two variable rate resistors on it to regulate fuel delivery for city/highway. The van also is equipped with an HHO generator that produces some 12-20 litres a minute, if I could make 55 litres constant, and pressurise that gas to 60 psi, I could run only on the HHO, no gasoline would be needed.

didnt know there was a automotive section on ats.

08 focus

4-cyl 120hp i believe

ive been having problems with gas mileage since i bought it: 350-400km per tank, thats like 18mpg.

fill twice a week,i do all highway too, i live in a small town and work at the next small town over 23km

ive taken it to the dealer and they keep giving me excuses. using defrost will lower gas mileage, idling to much, bad gas. blah blah. i think theres a conspiracy theory involving car manufactureres and warrenty they offer entailing "bad gas mileage"

On the highway I get 44.69 MPG (Us gallons)

I amazed how common the gas guzzlers are among people. One second people rant about high fuel prices, but still drive around with quite new cars with engines from the past....

Rolling tool box, has almost every kind of tool to build a home, fix a car or work on my tractor in it. Can cook lunch, and on rainy days change into my rain gear without getting wet.
