2000 Dodge Intrepid 4dr Sedan
my intrepid 2.7L V6 automatic 4-sp 202hp 244,000 kms continuously gets 20city 30hwy mpg - calculated many times since 2008 per: fillup, note odo, drive 3/4 tank, fillup at same exact pump, run formula.
and that's with 2 passengers, a full trunk @70 lbs, a headlamp-sized hole in the front end causing drag, a/c on, rear windows 2" open for convertible effect, 70-80F, going 68-70mph on canadian hwy.
city driving includes ample stops/lights/traffic.
style is semi-aggressive aka giving-gas when in doubt to merge, overtake, make yellows, off the line, as necessary.
i have to wonder if brutally cold winters somehow plays a role (its all the car has known)
