I usually get 20 mpg with my 93 F-150, but I have gotten as high as 22.1mpg. My '03 Sierra gets 19mpg, so it appears they haven't gotten a whole lot better in 10 years.

I can second those VW TDI cars, those cars are impressive in the mpg! One of my co-workers has a 02 Passat! That wolfsburg edition is sweet.

In my 94 with 3.55's I got 18.4 once going 3 and a half hours away with my four wheeler in the back. That was cool.

My 89 F150 I-6 gets 20 MPG average with a BW T-19 4sp trans and 2.73's. I have a 2003 Jetta TDI wagon that gets 55 mpg all day. My 95 T-bird gets 33 mpg (lots of mods, like the F 150) and my wife's cougar (95 as well) gets 26-27mpg, same motor as my bird, but stock. The killer is my F350 PSD. I get 23 on the highway and when I'm towing my 31' Airstream Sovereign I still get 16.5-17.5!

Cheers

Dennis
