My VX is up for sale. It's a '92. This is a 49-state "federal" VX with lean-burn that I bought in Colorado had shipped to California in April.
I bought the car earlier this year when the gas prices were crazy (almost $5/gallon in CA) and I was driving 50 miles round trip to my girlfriend's place 4 to 5 days a week. Well we broke up last week. So my gas sipper is up for sale.
I average 45 mpg with a 70% hwy / 30% city mix. I do utilize some hypermilling techniques (take off gently, shift below 2500rpm, <70mph on the freeway, coasting in neutral when I can) but I'm not a serious one, so your mpg may be more or less depending on your commute pattern and driving style.
EDIT: the car has 185/70/13 tires, and I haven't accounted for this in my gas logs. Adjusted for the 4.75% diameter difference over stock, my average is 46.6 mpg.
