Found this site to give you a base for comparison. It covers '85 to '97 Metro, '85 to '94 Sprints/Fireflys/Swifts. http://fueleconomydb.com/index.php?-tab ... l=%3DMETRO

my 86 gets close to 40 in city, and 37 freeway. highway (assuming 55) would be much better than 38.
i love how there never state the speed of the 'highway'

My 86 Automatic gets 36 and 40, running between 62-65 on the freeway. Pretty consistent tank to tank even if I have my AC running. I guess I have it as tweeked as I can hope to get. A few aero mods and new tires probably slightly help a bit too.

Just bought an 86 which had the interior gutted and racing seats installed. Not to mention no A/c (anywhere)

Since it has been "lightened" I'm sure the car weighs less than stock. But as of now I'm getting 50 to 55mpg mixed driving.

My ol 87 was only getting 45 tops.
