Guess The Vehicle

I have a 2011 Vehicle. Run the speed limit and do not shut off at red lights. No special hypermiling techniques other than keeping rpm down and not charging lights.

3 Stop Signs, 9 Traffic Lights and 10 Turns.
1 mile of 30 mph
0.5 mile of 40 mph
7 miles of 45 mph
1 mile of 55 mph
3 miles of 60 mph
3 miles of 70 mph
15.5 miles total from a cold start,
Average 25-28 mpg in 15F-80F conditions.

Guess the vehicle.

Re: Guess The Vehicle

Manual or automatic? Body style?

Lots of late-model cars would fit the description you've given. With your username being Tightwad I imagine it would be something inexpensive (i.e. no Honda tax).

Hyundai Accent or Kia Forte would be my first guesses.

Re: Guess The Vehicle

Yes there are many vehicles that could get 25-28mpg under those conditions. Since you are driving with FE in mind I'll assume you're getting a few mpg better than epa average, although there is plenty of variability in driving technique.
Candidates could be a compact pickup or suv, small or mid size sedan.

Re: Guess The Vehicle

My vote goes to Mercury Grand Marquis. Its surprising how well they do, despite their size.

It's obviously a 2011 Lamborghini Gallardo LP550-2 Valentino Balboni.

Were there any manual grand marquis?
