88 mustang 5.0l convertible. lousy on gas, but the ride is great! More freedom than my motorcycle, no sweating under a helmet, no boots gloves and fear of lousy blind drivers. warm weather, just pop the top down and off you go. I love my mustang.
public transports and cars which can occupy multiple people at a time....as we use common vehicle..so we will be able save fuel..n so can save money.. Because fuel is not renewable source ...we must have to save that, for future generations... Dont u think so?
Haha you'd think so judging by the distance it goes off one tank!
I admit I'm not much for driving "economically" and it's only since me and my friend with a mk2 Vauxhall/Opel Corsa (both of similar size engine 1.3 and 1.4 repsectively) decided to try hypermiling and got really good results, his car has a larger petrol tank so it took a bit more to fill it up money wise but they both lasted around the same ammount of time.
This was around three weeks of driving back and forth to work five days a week, we both live around 7.5 miles from work. We both managed just over three weeks worth, I know 279 miles was on the clock by the end of it in my car.
I don't know the MPG as I'm a bit pants when it comes to maths like that
There's a lot to be said for hypermiling, no sudden braking and trying not to go over 60mph worked wonders for me!
Dang I still had the receipt from a recent trip to the petrol station and threw it in the bin a few minutes ago. Filling up my tank cost £26, plus I'm in the UK too so I'll have to take WHoArtNow's word for it.
I walk to my work place, generally use public transport or cycle round London, or walk. We do have a car - a Fiat Brava. Works well, little maintaining to be done, gets about 35 mph, and is quite fun to drive as well.
I don't own a car. Never have. Won't until it's absolutely necessary (ie, I have kids). I walk and take BART and busses everywhere. The occasional cab if something is really inaccessible by public transportation (ie, not within a 30-minute brisk walk), or if I am wearing heels above 3 inches.
I drive a BMW , yup worked my batooty off for it too!!! It is a little gift that I strived for and it took quite sometime. I do have to say I love my car and after owning a few American made and Foreign, I will never buy anything else. I am now done and plan on keeping my car for another 20 years. lolololo well who knows.
Peugeot 206, a bit feminine for me, but I love her!! And despite what people say about French cars, this ones done me proud for the last 3 years. Gotta touch a table now :-). If there was a little switch under the bonnet to change it to an Aston martin DBS though, I would press it!
Misha, I was reading all the posts here and wondering, how come - nothing from you. LOL. I got my driving license only when we moved to WI, never drove before (there was no need for this, In Soviet Union I couldn’t afford it, in Israel public transportation was excellent), but in my corner of the world you are useless without vehicle. I try to walk any time it is possible (within 3-4 miles). Otherwise, I drive 2007 PT Cruiser (I like it, though not crazy about it), my son drives my 2005 Toyota RAV4 (this one I love!, but he needs this type of a vehicle more, as he is more on the road than me, so I gave it to him). Before we both had Chevy Trackers, very nice cars.
I drive a 2008 ford focus. bought it right off the show room floor. has every option available in the 2008 focus. its great on gas but it sucks a little in the winter because it is so small and we get a lot of snow here.
Hubbie said I could probably get a nice little 4x4 truck next purchase
I drive a 1999 Ford Taurus Station Wagon. It gets surprisingly good gas mileage for such a big car (about 25 mpg), I guess because it isn't a boxy car and I drive almost entirely on the highway...very little stop and go.
I would love to commute to work some other way, but as I start at five a.m., nobody is around to commute with and there are no buses where I live.
It seats 7 people and is invaulable hauling stuff. I could load it with all kinds of gear when I was in the band and I can load it up with a bunch of aluminum to take to the recycling center.
It has 141,000+ miles on it and I don't want to give it up. I am looking to buy a newer car in the Spring as my oldest daughter will be old enough to drive, plus its always good to have a spare just in case.
I drive a car, and I'm almost embarrassed to tell you what kind. But I will anyway: I drive a 1995 Ford Escort. They don't even make them anymore. But, it's still in good shape and has hardly given me any trouble since I've had it. Thinking seriously about getting a new one this year, not that I need one!
I drive a Saturn Vue, but the gas milage sucks pond water. And it's had nothing but little issues that require me to keep taking it back in to the dealership. I want to get rid of it before the warranty runs out. We're looking now to trade it in, but I don't even know where to begin looking for a new one!
Dream car....Mazda RX8...almost bought it when I bought the Mazda 6, but as a single woman at the time, I wasn't prepared to take car of all the extra maintenance required for the rotary engine. The Mazda RX8 would be more fun as a second car rather than a daily driver I think.
