1960 Austin Healey 3000:        21 miles per gallon
1986 Mazda B2000:               18 miles per gallon
1993 Honda DelSol:              40 miles per gallon
1998 Honda Civic HX:            42 miles per gallon.

I'm not that interested in what Detroit has been, or will be, doing.

And I will state that if we are getting mileage between 16 and 20, then what
the heck has Detroit been doing over the last 40 years. Certainly not
improving on what the British did with our cars. I would bet that there are
few of us who can get mileage on new cars remotely close to the sticker
mileage which is computed in a laboratory and not real world conditions as
you guys did.
