My car was a 1984 Buick Regal Grand National (with 87 motor and drive train)

Engine- 3.8L 231ci OHV V6 SFI Injection, turbocharged and intercooled with quite a few go fast goodies. Fastest 1/4 mile ET it ran as flat 11 with stock size street tires and pump gas and that was after spinning pretty good out of the hole.

MPGs- Really dependent on your right foot, I got as good as close to 30mpg or when I couldn't keep my foot out of it, about half of that if I was lucky.

How often I filled my tank varied wildly.

Yes I did have the best possible vanity plate back when I lived in California

She wasn't a show car I was working on getting her to go how I wanted before I started on cosmetics.

Sadly my brother "borrowed it" without my permission while I was asleep and lost control trying to show off to his friends and hit a tree totaling, the second car of mine he totaled.

My car right now is a 1999 Mustang SVT Cobra (yes a true, real cobra not just a badge job)

Engine- 4.6L 281ci DOHC 32 valve all aluminum V8

MPGs- With mixed driving and not babying it gets around 22mpg but that's about as low as it goes unless you're driving the p$*% out of it, best I've gotten was about 26 all interstate doing about 85. Not too bad for roughly 420hp V8.

I usually don't have to fill her up very often and usually get roughly 250-325 miles per tank, but it does require premium.

Now keep in mind these are just the car's I've had a few trucks to throw in the mix too but seeing as I've only had about 2 hours rest in 48 hours I'm about to pass out so will post those later.

Ford Sierra RS Cosworth 4x4
engine: 4 cylinder petrol, 2.0 DOHC injection 16V turbo + intercooler, 220 BHP

Due to 50 - 50 % weight distribution front - rear and permanent 4x4 traction, it sticks to the road like glue; and the power / weight ratio allows fast acceleration.

1986 4runner
5speed with a worn out gearbox
4 banger
263,000 miles
She still keeps truckin
I put gas in it about 3 times a week since I drive a lot, I get about 20mpg
I hear keeping your car in gear while coasting saves gas, seems to be true

For the last year and a bit, been driving a Skoda Octavia Scout (2010 facelifted model).

One the long run to / from the office 3 times a week (100 mile round trip) I average about 38-40mpg, from a 160bhp 1.8Tsi petrol engine. Haldex 4 wheel drive system on hand if it gets slippy!

Now that I work from home 2 days a week I only need to fill up once a week.

1991 Honda Civic
Since I rebuilt the engine 7 years ago, I've been steadily getting 16km/L.
1.6L 4 cyl
I'll fill up twice a month, and it's costing under $50 to do so.
I'll clock about 300km per week.

22 years old and it still passes smog with flying colors and gets better mileage than most new cars. Honda is the way to go... !!

Girlfriend = Mustang
How many cylinders?
How many miles to the gallon?
How often do you fill your tank?
1-2 times weekly.
How many miles a week do you drive?

Starting tomorrow night, a 1990 Ford F250. Made specifically for law enforcement. 2 owner vehicle with 96,000 original miles. Roughy 5,000 on a re-built engine.

8 cylinders.


Don't know yet. But I always keep the tank full. After 25 miles or so I always hit the gas station. (Keep pumping baby

Between 100 and 200. Depending on how much side work I'll be doing on top of my regular job.

Test driving it and doing a carfax on it today, but from what I've seen and heard of it so far, it sounds like a steal for the price I'm paying. I really hope this one works out. I usually have good judgement when it comes to getting vehicles though.....That's why I've only had 3 "full timers" in my life time. There were the ones that came and went when I was a teenager, but that's mainly because I didn't know how to take care of them yet.

Cars are like women.....take care of them and they'll take care of you.

I see this next one lasting a long time. I had my Oldsmobile for 12 years, we had a good run, but sometimes things happen that you just can't fix. Built Ford Tough isn't just an expression in my book, it's the truth. She's got a few cosmetic issues that need to be addressed, but after looking under the hood and hearing how she sounds.......she's a keeper.

The only question left is.......what's the pet name for that truck gonna be?

I make no secret of my method of transport. In my opinion the Z32 300ZX is one of the finest pieces of machinery in existence. Most other Z owners agree.
Mine is a 1990 (7/89) 2-Seater Non-Turbo 5-Speed.
V6 24 Valve DOHC with variable intake-cam timing.
25-30 MPG (around 20 if your feeling aggressive)
I never fill my tank, usually keep her right around half.
2-300 miles / week. Some weeks 1000+

Shes great in the snow

Shown here with '96 Mustang GT rear wheels.

Any other Nissan fanatics?
