I only factored 10lbs of junk weight into mine which is probably too low plus i never added mass for gas. gas tank levels are always changing though so it probably averages 35 lbs of fuel and 20lbs of stuff I carry plus my 175lbs= 1996lbs * 70.15 / 1= 140019.4 .

My car can haul a good volume of stuff for it's size. I brought home a pretty tall roller toolbox with a riser and top chest still in the boxes in one trip. I don't have a passenger seat in the front though .

Got my little 190 beat again...I have a folding stroller in the trunk, and it is about 85% occupied, and MB put the fuel tank upright behind the rear seat, so there is no folding seat or even a pass through.

Now...the Taurus...that can swallow some stuff!!! If I put the front passenger seat forward a few inches, I can stuff 8' 2x4s in the back, and shut the hatch!

I drive a '92 4dr geo metro, much like jwxr7's but no mods yet (just EOC).
I work at home and only drive to ultimate frisbee games a couple times a week.

~1800 lb curb weight + 35lb gas on avg + 500 lb occupants+gear
= 2335 lb * 43 MPG
= 100405 lb*mpg (all city)

Looking forward to doing some mods and seeing if I can get closer to jwxr7.
