New from Indiana

Hi. I've got a 1998 Camaro (3.8L A4) and my better half has a 2003 Honda Accord EX (2.4L A5). Both cars have been surprisingly good to us. I'm just looking for ways to save at the pump and heard this was to place to find them.

Welcome.

Please enter some data in the gaslog, I'd love to know how your v6 Camaro does. I wanted that car but, due to short supply, I leased my VW instead...I plan on getting the new 5th gen Camaro v6 when my lease is up. 3.6L direct injection, 300hp, might be EPA rated 30mpg highway and I expect I'll be able to squeeze out 30mpg combined.

Welcome! It looks like you're a Linux person too judging by the Tux avatar.

I always liked that GM 3.8, great engine and always thought it delivered decent FE for its size.

Plenty of good info to be found here, I've learned a lot.

I will as soon as I need to fill up. I go 4 days or so before it gets to 1/4 tank. I'm on day 2.

My eyes were opened and I saw the error of my ways about 5 years ago. Now, I swear by Linux and swear at Windows. By the way, nice avatar, ColonelPanic . It's much nicer than mine.

Hrpmh. People told me I was completely insane to think I could get 27mpg from a v6 4thgen Camaro. I should have ignored them and tried harder to find one.
