What kind of car(s) do you drive? What kind of gas mileage do they get?

I wish I could say I drive a green hybrid...but I can't. I drive a gas guzzling Toyota Sienna. However, I rarely drive more than 15-20 miles per week. I only have to fill up with gas once a month, so I don't feel too guilty.

Thanks Kristy (*Kiliki*) for the awesome siggy!!

I really wanted to get a hybrid, but unforunately we didn't We have a Santa Fe, only car we have. We needed the bigger car for moving cross country and a family car. I don't know the mileage off hand, DH drives it to and from work M-F and we occasionally run up the block to the grocers on the weekends.

Our car is a Hyundai Elantra that gets just shy of 30 miles per gallon. We don't use it often though. Actually as little as possible. We still want to switch to a hybrid when we can, but right now we just can't afford it. DH has to drive a diesal truck for work and I know that gets horrible mileage. The company doesn't give anybody a choice though unfortunately and he goes through around $300 of diesal a week, sometimes more.

We have a little beater Honda that is alright on milage and then we have a Dodge pick up that I try to use as little as possible. I'd love to trade it back and get something more fuel effecient but it's so upside down at this point we can't.

I drive a Chevy Trailblazer that guzzles a lot of gas. It gets 14 or so MPG. DH drives a Chevy S-10 and it gets 25-30 MPG, so it's better. We don't drive the Trailblazer much because of its gas guzzling.

I love my Honda Civic. I am getting anywhere from 32 to 40 mpg. It depends on what kind of gas I get and how many highway miles I drive.

Dh is driving a Toyota Avalon. I'm not sure what kind of mileage he gets. It's lower than mine but still decent.
