Hello all, I have a 2001 Saturn SC1 3-door. I just bought the car for $1500 cash and it has just over 142,000 miles and is a 5-speed overdrive stick shift. Not many manuals around today. I don't know my milage as yet but it seems good. I filled it up when I bought it on June 7 2013 and it still has almost 3/4 of a tank left. I driven it all over town and took it a trip up to Boston too. For little fuel.

Not sure if I can help you Abigail

Hello Abigail!!

I am not sure what the best used car is for fuel economy. I asked God for help on this same question. Jesus thus led me to a rare chance private sale where I bought my Saturn. I have not really checked the mileage yet, but it seems to get into the low to mid 30's mpg in city driving. Mine is a stick shift. Meaning it uses a clutch and manual gears. It also is old school as it uses crank windows and manual locks. I weighs just a little over a ton, so it is a light car. Has a 1.9 Liter 4 cylinder engine. Only has 109 horse power, but really good low end torque like a semi. I bought my 2001 Saturn SC 1 for $1500 but I heard it really sells for about $5000. If you can shift that is a good car. I ran the gas low the other day, below 1/4 tank. Not empty but maybe close. The low light did not light if there is one. It took only 9 gallons of gas to fill full. The last time I fueled it was the beginning of August. I heard finding a used 4 cylinder car is tough these days. Ask God for help. Oh yes, my SC 1 only has 3 doors. If you see one buy it and you'll like the 2 doors on the driver side. They open like a venetian door! It is cool! They have plastic sides so don't dent easy. Mine is a coupe and considered a sports car sort of. It is peppy, and red. A lot of folks like my car.

This looks like the right place. I recently purchased a 2002 Dodge Ram 1500 conversion van with 100,000 mi and EPA rated at 13/15 MPG. I established a baseline of 13.7 and 12.5 MPG on my second and third fill-ups so I'm guessing technique will improve things.
I just performed a major tuneup: synthetic 10W-30 oil, filter, air filter, plugs, wires, cap, rotor, differential lube. I'm anxious to see any improvement as a result on this next tank.
Next, I am installing a BAFX OBD2 reader to work with the Torque Android app to see if I can get some good feedback while driving. I'll likely increase tire pressure to the maximum while I'm at it.
Should be fun.

Sounds like you're off to a good start! If you have any questions, just ask.

It won't measurably affect fuel economy, but does a 2002 Dodge specify 10W30 or 5W30? I would expect the latter.

First post. I bought a 2014 Cruze diesel 2 weeks ago. So far I love it. I managed 47.4 mpg for 25 miles mixed town and highway driving. I am getting around 35 mpg driving to work and shopping.
I am surprised that so few Americans are willing to buy diesels. I am looking forward to seeing what kind of trip mpg it will get.
