Old Toyota with promise!

Hello everyone. Its great to be part of a few who actually care about our environment and wallets. I bought my 1990 Toyota SR5 manual in September of this year as a "Beater car" to drive to the city for work. My other car I bought brand new in 2006 - a Toyota Corolla LE, which is a very reliable and efficient car so far. I know my 1990 Corolla is old but it has only 110,000 and one original owner who treated her very well. I will try to use all the potential skills to squeeze every mpg out of her. I'll be posting in the future again.

Actually I am getting better mpg in my older corolla than in my new one which is only 2 years old and has a little over 14 thousand miles on it. I think it could be that the older one is a manual and the newer one is an auto.
I also havent done a tune-up on my older one yet or changed the timing belt.
