We had a 1999 Buick Park Avenue and it would do 26 mpg everyday driving. On a trip to Florida it did 33 mpg and the whole trip to Orlando it did over 30 mpg. Plenty of room and plenty of power. I was at the dealer Wednesday and the best a full size Buick on the window sticker was 28 mpg. On the truck I now have it is about the same as the old one a 03 Duramax.

I had a '94 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham that I got 28 mpg going a lot faster than I want the State of Pennsylvania to know about. It got better mileage in or out of town than any "family" car I've owned since. So much for progress!

Could be because those old cars used carburetors and not fuel injectors. Back in the 50's I read about this guy that had developed a carburetor that would get 80 MPG on an 8 cylinder engine. For some reason it never showed up on the market. I am sure the guy and his relatives are still enjoying the money the oil industry paid him for his invention.
