Looking for gas milage

I am thinking about buying a car with better gas milage than my Ford F150. Does anyone know of a site that lists the gas milage of different makes and models of vehicles?

I have a 1999 Hyundai Elantra (don't laugh, it's paid for) and I get on average 29 MPG on a 12 gallon tank.

I was gonna say the same thing. Go outside, blindfold yourself, turn in circles, and point. Remove blindfold. The vehicle you are pointing at will get better gas mileage.

My Focus gets 32 mpg. But then again it's just "piece of shit" Focus and everyone here hates them.

worst part of owning an F150 is not the mpg, but trying to trade it in without going upside down

Just traded in my POS Focus Tuesday. The most MPG I could get with that was 27 average. Now my new Toyota Camry (heavier car) will get somewhere in the 30 MPG range. I don't know what year Fuckus you have, but mine was a 2001 (bought brand new) and was the biggest headache.

My 1998 Chevy Metro gets 44 in the city and 49 on the highway. It is the 3 cyinder stick shift. The automatic 4 cylinder version gets slightly worse mileage (like 38 city/44 highway, I think.)

This is the most fuel-efficient gasoline-powered car sold in the U.S., unless you step up to a gas/electric hybrid.

I have a 2003 manual hatchback. You probably had an automatic sedan thus the reason yours was a POS.

Funny. I had a '92 3 cyl. Metro years ago. Great milage and was a very good car to me. Other than the 3 windshields I had to replace. Sold it for $550. I actually miss that freaking car. I guess everyone's first car usually means something.
