How far can you drive on that tank? | Car manages 584MPG!

Perhaps you have a really economical car. You drive carefully, steadily – there is no harsh braking or acceleration when you’re in the car.

Inefficient Chrysler PT Cruiser | Funky Car has Terrible MPG

I have always loved the look of the Chrysler Cruiser.
