Yes and no. The Chrysler gets decent gas mileage. The Mercury Marquis gets horrible mileage. I would prefer higher mpg. But my bike gets good mpg.

Yes, absolutely!

Sonata 2.4 - good 28 mpg / Miami traffic / city 40%
Santa Fe turbo - terrible 18 mpg / Miami traffic / city 95% (but fun when on the gas, hard). Still, i'd prefer better MPGs.

Yes and no.

I like getting good gas mileage. But I didn't mind going from 34 to 24 moving Focus > Forester

Yes, it matters -- I would rather spend less to get from point A to B than spend more.

That's why I cannot understand people who are against improving fuel economy.

With my current driving patterns, it doesn't matter too much. In my next car, smiles per gallon will be more important.

If my 4.6 Mustang gets 23-24 MPG,
And my 4.6 F150 gets 18-19 MPG,

You Grand Marquis should be getting at least 20

Yes, I get 18-19mpg in my Jeep. Would I like to get more? Yes. Would I like to drive an Little Economy Box that I have to squeeze into? No thank you.

Yep, we live out in the sticks so we drive quite a bit and gas is $4-5 per gallon, so the difference between a 30mpg and 20mpg vehicle over a couple decades is no joke. I figure it pretty much pays for my kids college education.

These products are all new every year?? They are a revolution!!! Razor blades, mens shirts, TVs, wiper blades, gutter guards, hearing aids... according to the ads. But also all new last year

Nope. I just don't do enough miles for it to matter.

Yes it does to me to some degree. Wife averages about 24K miles a year and I'm right about at 18K miles. But, as long as we get mid 20's mpg, I can live with that. My truck...well...it gets about 13 mpg and probably averages about 4K miles a year.

When I drove in excess of 25,000 miles per year it certainly mattered but, now that I drive less the 7,000 per year it matters less but, is till important to me. Ed
