Seeing Premium gas near 3.50 around here is killing me. But I have been managing around 27mpg city and 34 highway. This gas price surge sure is preventing me from speeding and accelerating fast.

ditto, i'm staying off the gas as much as possible. i'm averaging around 32 mpg. which i think is phenominal for all stop and go traffic.

I was going to try and rig up a taser/stun gun in my car so that if I hit even 1psi of boost it will shock the piss out of me. Here it just depends on what day you buy gas, one day its $3.49, next it's $2.59, back and forth every single day, but it is about $0.30 cheaper on base than off base.

Current issue of Consumer Reports (October, page 22) says Cobalt LS automatics are one of the "worst" fuel-efficient vehicles -- 23 mpg!

I seem to average around 8.6L/100km on my standard LS. I've seen it as low as 6.2L/100km on the highway and 8.2L/100km in-town. Seems to really fluctuate when the A/C is on which with the summer we've had was almost ALL the time. Overall I think my average is somewhere around 6.8L/100km on the highway and 9.2L/100km in the city, so I guess I really can't complain since GMs rating was 9.5L/100km in town and 6.1L/100km on the highway. I'm assuming they rated the highway economy at somewhere around 80 - 90 km/h because after 100km/h it steadily climbs and sits around the 6.4 mark where I'm at.

I also drive about 50/50 and my overall average for 5000 miles is 27.9 mpg

by the way this includes doing many nights at the drag strip

LOL, Nice!

But nothing in his entire post made sense. You never want to change your oil too early. Brand new oil is harder on an engine then old oil.

Gas mileage for me is of maximum concern lately. I got my Saturn so I didn't have to put $60 in gas in it every other week. With gas prices being what they are, and what they're going to be, then I'm royally screwed. So much for getting an apartment. I can't even afford my own car.
