Mike is seriously thinking of getting another car for me to drive when I don't need the 15 pass van. The gas is killing us.
I was thinking a Honda Civic. Tonight he mentioned a mini-van so I could take the 5 younger ones with me as needed. I told him I didn't think they got very good gas mileage. He poined out even 20 mpg would be twice as good as what I get now. He plans to begin asking folks as they get into their mini-vans what their gas mileage is. I told him I thought a blog post would give us lots of info too.....without him having to catch folks getting into their vans.
His clunker Honda gets 40 mpg....but I can't drive it well with my aching joints.....
Would those of you with mini-vans leave a note as to what you get for gas mileage, and which one you have? If you have another car that gets over 20 mpg would you leave the info - and how many people it would sit - max with a car seat?
I was sort of pushing for a convertible.....but Mike points out I can roll the windows down and get the wind blown feel, and the roof will save me from sun stroke. ::snort::
Tonight we realized that our two drivers may be staying here when we move so I haven't a clue how we'd get the new car to a new town...but we'll worry about that later......and yes...we'll pay cash for whatever we get, so it has to stay in the IRS refund/stimulus price range. ::snort::
