    I will repeat, the best mileage I ever got in a Studebaker was 28mpg in a 289 3spd/od. I never managed that in my Champions.

      Well Lennart - If you are comfortable with declaring yourself a winner - Go for it But at those prices, I am thinking that you are on the loosing end [?] [^]


      I filled up today - $2.32 per gal. St. Louis, Missouri - I pulled out and drove approx. 1 mile and saw 2 stations at $2.27 per gal. [:I]

          Just paid about 95 cents per liter for Diesel at the Road King in Calgary. The Suburban only took 120 liters this time, since I shut it off when the level got up to the window sills.

                  Last year going to the Schrock Brothers and back, we averaged 22 mpg in the 56J. I know that sound wrong, but it is true. The fuel guage does not work properly so we would drive about 100 o 120 miles and fill up. Never took more than 5.5 to 6.1 gallons.

                      Hi guys,
                      I filled up my cute little Lark on the way to work this morning with motion lotion in middle England.

                      Price converted into US gallons is a very exciting $6.34 per gallon

                      So Lennart, you old rascal in Sweden, I win a bit more than you.

                      Do we have any French or Italians in the forum to peg the UK price?

                          Well now I don't feel to bad....$2.69 at Safeway, before
                          the .10cent fuel discount, so I really pay $2.59 the green
                          diesel is right at $2.79...before the discount....and this
                          is the same gas/diesel that is being sold in "Sandy Eggo"
                          at over $3.00 a gal.

                              Are you subject to the tax imposed for driving into London?
                              A friend over there says that his tax is the equivlant to $297 a month, but since he has a "flat" in London he gets it reduced to less than $20 per month.
