Hi, I have been interested in good mpg since I started driving, gas was only $.50 a gallon back then. ( ya I'm old) anyway this is a cool site, I finally found some people that share a common interest.
current vehicles 94 f-150...... 2000 merc sable. I have given up all hope of getting good mileage from the truck but, the merc has some potential, at least on the highway. (Stupid auto tranny). I have a scan gauge and have been messing around with fuel adds, different oils and a fuel warmer. so far my best mpg (full tank) is 34.5, Hope to learn a few new things here.
You're getting better than my fully-loaded automatic 06 toyota matrix. those things are heavier than the fully-loaded 5speed corollas by 300 pounds or so . weird because the corolla is longer.... then again the matrix is wider and stiffer.
Anyways, i'm new here too, so nice to meet you ELF. Is your sable a GS or the LS premium model?
