I was at a gas station/convenience store getting a cuppa and flirting with
the 20 year olds behind the counter when a Fit came in. At fisrt I thought
it was an Si and then saw the 4 doors.
The guy had driven from Connecticut to near the Vt border at highway
speeds, a trip of 75 miles, and had to put in 2.76 gallons of gas.
75/2.76'.17 MPG HUH?! I get 21 MPG overall with an older Supra that
isn't quite running 100% and has a marginal AT besides!
I said jokinigly that he should keep his foot out of it! He said he barely
gets over 30 MPG overall, and since this is his first real trip with the
car he expected to at least be in the high 30's. It wasn't that warm and
he didn't have the AC one when he pulled in for gas.
Now, with an '87 Corolla Carb'd on a 95 degree day, I got 45 MPG at 75 MPH
with the AC on full blast, back in the day!
He also said when it's cold he barely makes it to 28 MPG...
