    I take the wifes car to work when i work nights since she wont need it. and make trips to get things only when there are other things to be picked up along the way.. Hence why my boat is still in storage at my mothers house..

    On our long-3000 mile trips I keep the cruise control on about 68 mph, keep the tire pressure at 45 psi, and observe all road work speed limits.
    Our 98 Suburban(213,000 miles bought with 195,000 3 years back) gets 21 mpg .Heck,I would have bought a Suburban years ago if I knew they got 21 mpg at 65 mph.Of course they really got cheap in 2007-2008-wish I could have afforded a 2004.They were selling for under $10,000 with just 65,000 miles in 2008.

    Oh well,I'm happy with what I have-runs great-great road trip vehicle.

    I bought a 1987 honda civic for the 60 mile commute. Now don't rip on me too much, I snagged it for $200 and it gets 38 mpg. keeps the miles off my truck too.

    Nice snag.. My buddy did the same thing with a 98 Taurus got it for the same price. Gotta love a beater. I still drive the wifes car at night, however the boat is finally out.. However the chevy still sits more than it moves...

    It's funny to go back through an older poll like this as it's clearly true that gas prices have changed everything ... our overall economy, the vehicles that we purchase, even the decision to put off buying a new vehicle and keeping the one you have for another two or three years (and in some cases four or five years).
