Anyone have any suggestions on getting better mileage from the 2.5?

Buy a corolla or drive like an old man. What's your actual MPG.

Georges98TJ 02-28-2012 07:34 PM

Save your money on the Cal. Do a search on the forum.

Anybody follows me like that, I will pull the trolly ( trailer brake lever ) and briefly lock up the trailer, smoke em out, that usually scares the daylights out of them, and miraculously, they back off.. Is risking your life tailgating a big truck worth a couple bucks worth of gas? I think not,, I had a deer jump out in front of me last fall, unfortunately the car behind me ended up in the ditch to avoid hitting me. Thankfully the airbags worked, and her seatbelts were on, so she was unhurt. We can stop a lot quicker than most people realize..
