1. 2008 - 1993 = 15. see my earlier comment about your math.
2. you don't seem to understand that modern cars are much heavier than
the older ones, and thus, because the extra weight takes more energy to
move around, many modern cars lose their fuel efficiency advantage
compared to older ones. or at least, older hondas. a literally 20 year
old crx hf can out-perform the current civic hybrid by some margin in
fuel economy ratings.
15 years old junker or 20 years old junker - what is really the difference?
I was never comparing her 93 to todays 2008 models but I was comparing her
93 now with 185k miles to *the same car* when young, with 10k miles in 1993.
Do you really think her 93 with 185k burns less fuel than when it had 10k miles
on the odometer? I certainly doubt it.
Yeah right. Pretty rare. The following makers all have basic
warranties greater than 40K miles:
Land Rover 4/50,000
I can see you have a lot of time on your hand, please
add to the list the BIGGEST car manufacturers like toyota,
gm, ford honda and not only with their luxury items.
What is the warranty on honda, discussed here?
You expect somebody who was incapable of operating a web browser and visiting
google in the first place to be able to use it now?
You need to give him a search string. Obviously, he can't do it by himself.
Pez: try "engine break-in fuel economy"
You think his English is bad? Out of my immediate group of coworkers, five out
of seven are from India. A couple of them sound like indians from an early
hollywood western. It's also related to our broken educational system -- the
company wouldn't be able to find enough software engineers if having english as
a first language was a serious requirement.
