I drive a Prius...*pause* (as I wait for the laughter to die down)...and as a vehicle for daily driving it is great! The gas mileage is a big plus and for my needs, it is a perfect car. I would love to own another Mustang one day, unless the apocalypse happens, but until that day, I will drive green.

96 Honda accord two door manual.

I can go 400 miles on 35 bucks worth of gas. Also, the manual transmission is basically an anti theft device. If you can drive stick, I'm not too worried about you stealing my car. The thing also does not use oil. Which is good, because I'm pretty bad about checking it, and worse about changing it.
The thing is indestructible, which is good because I beat it like a redheaded step child. I slip gears all the time, I've ditched it, backed into shit, and it never misses a beat. I love that thing.
Never hit first. Always hit back.

2006 Honda civic hybrid. I average 425 miles a tank(12 gallons), as long as I have ground clearance and a little traction, I'll move, they're hard to break, and are surprisingly spacious. I'm gonna use my reenlistment bonus to buy a new Subaru outback though.

1991 Ford F-250. It's a 5 speed manual and gets around 9 miles to the gallon...I like it because it's one tough truck.
And on the 8th day, God looked down on his planned paradise, and said "I need a caretaker."
So God made a farmer.

9 MPG? Is there anything you could change or add to bring that number up? My Jeep is good for 16-21 MPG (Manual Transmission). I can usually drive to Reno on a tank of gas (about 230 miles). Driving home once in extremely high winds I only made it 150 miles before I had to fill up. Jeeps are not streamlined, more like holding an empty box in moderate winds.

The engine is a 460, fuel injected. That's pretty standard for fuel milage...I'm saving to get something else but for now it works.

After ten years with a full-sized SUV, I finally got a new car. A 2014 Nissan Juke. I love it because it's fast as all get out, AWD, fun to drive... and cute. It's small so it's easy to zip around. The only downside is its 12 gallon tank needs filled too often.
