    ∞ mpg. My primary is my bike. My truck is rarely used and only when I need a truck.

    My bike gets about 1000 miles to the gallon if I could metabolize gasoline. If you meant to say primary Motor vehicle then 10 MPG. Have not used it in months.

    My wife's Civic gets 36 city. My Tacoma pick up does about 19 city.

    Some sort of pithy irrelevant one-liner should go here.

    32 mpg on my 07 mazda 3.

    I'm glad to see nobody's primary vehicle is in the "0" mpg zone, that would be difficult.

    My old cargo van (3/4 ton, extended wheelbase, extended body, 5.7L V8, 4-barrel carb, headers, and some crappy late-70s "emissions" equipment) would probably get something like 8-10 MPG, had it not been relegated to "storage shed" duty for the last decade. That 33 gallon gas tank would be a ***** to keep full these days...

    6.6 liter (401 V8) and late 70's crap. Put out like 220 horse but a gob of torque. It was the Wagoneer version, roughly 6000 lbs dry... thing was a beast.

    41 - 50mpg in my Turbo Diesel Jetta. Depends on how I drive it, and if the bikes are mounted on top or not.

    65mpg on my scooter.

    There's often big differences between city driving and highway cruising.
