In your experience, what vehicle has given you the best fuel economy?
Car manufacturers tout that some of these hybrid vehicles get an "astonishing" 35 mpg (somewhere around that number), making them "the most fuel efficient vehicles on the road". Frankly, I find them to be laughable. My Dad's old '59 Studebaker had a V8 and got 42 mpg. My first car was an '81 Datsun 210 and I managed to get close to 62 mpg (and a mere 10 gallon tank). Even my old 91' Chrysler LeBaron got 35 mpg at speeds in excess of 70 mph (approximately 113 kph for our metric friends). I'd like to hear about your vehicles that got great mileage without this "advanced" hybrid technology.
