    I was just curious. My primary means of transportation is my Harley, because I love riding it and it gets around 40 mpg. I live 3 miles from work, so this is feasible.

    On the other hand, I have a 6 liter GMC Sierra that gets around 11 mpg. It is paid off and I'm not selling it, because I wouldn't get nowhere near what I paid for it. Plus... It's a truck. Having a truck is very handy.

    Not much guesswork there. The amount that I have saved on not driving my truck is paying a good portion of the motorcycle. Plus I have something to do on the weekends.

    How about you?
    What do you have?
    What does it get?
    Do you have more than one option?

    mix of highway/city = 23mpg

    highway only = 25mpg

    city only = 20mpg (current situation)


    advertised = 22/27mpg

    2002 Maxima - 23
    2003 Acura TL -25

    TL gets a lot better mileage than the maxima for some reason.

    2001 Ford Escort. Pretty consistently gets about 30 mpg, which is great considering it is over 100k miles now.

    2003 Toyota 4Runner V6 SR5 4WD

    18.1 mpg

    I rarely put it in 4WD, but I'm certain it gets worse mileage if I do.
