i love my tbird but i need a second vehicle i am debating between a good fuel economy vehicle or a new truck...any suggestions
That is really cool. I want to see if ford offers a sport option for that (svt?)How about a '12 Focus Wagon.
Except for the fuel that was burned to create the electricity that you use.... let's not forget about that. There's no such thing as a free lunch.My 1995 Mazda Protege that I bought brand new and ran about 300,000 miles (never changed an alternator or starter) got about 39 mpg new, then went up to about 41-42 mpg once it got 75,000 miles on it.
At over 200,000 miles, it went down to about 38 mpg. I keep anal records on my mileage - that's why I keep updating the Thunderbird one; I despise giving a huge chuck of my money to oil companies.
I want one of those Chevy Volts so badly I can't stand it! I would use hardly any fuel at all with one of those. There are accounts of people averaging 2500 mpg with that car is some forums! If you don't go over 50 miles between plug-ins, you'll never use a drop of fuel!
