is that thing even capable of a sustained 80mph lmao,prolly takes forever to get there as well
capable? yes. enjoyable? no. It's actually a surprisingly spunky car that handles quite well also, but crazytown freeway isn't it's strong suit. lots of road noise at anything over 60-65, and milage really suffers. absolute best milage is actually cruising at nearer 50MPH. 60-65mph is pretty good also, but above that milage drops to ONLY 35-40MPG
. guys who do hipermiling in these things do get nearly 60mpg, but they are the crazy ones imho.
My T bucket has a modified 99 Cadillac Northstar engine and T-5, so I'd guess it gets around 15-20 just cruisin around town (I've never actually checked however).
