    Good News to read!! An everyday sedan with a sporty demeanor.
    With the recent doubling of crude-oil prices, Mitsubishi's ninth-
    generation Lancer is arriving at a time of renewed interest in
    smallish sedans. As with most new vehicles, this latest Lancer is
    stiffer and more powerful than its predecessor, but unlike most of its
    competitors, it hasn't grown much in size.

    Nice size for a car in that class.
    The gasoline mileage is nothing to write home about though!

    The Lancer's 29 MPG highway is not great, but it's not that bad. There
    are too many variables in city mileage, so I tend to ignore that and
    only compare highway mileage.

    My wife's '07 Saturn Sky (base 2.4L with AT) gets 27 on the highway. I
    find this disappointing because that's the same as her previous car, a
    '98 Mustake 3.8L V6 & AT. (can you tell I hated that car?)

    Our '98 Stratus ES (2.5L V6 & Autostick) has always gotten at least 31
    MPG on the highway. It is now showing 138,000 miles and still runs great
    (original engine and trans).

    My '94 Eclipse 2.0L Turbo puts out over 250 HP and got me 32-34 MPG
    highway on a recent trip. Over a 30-mile commute that is a mix of rural
    and freeway I get 31 MPG. The engine is not stock and gets this because
    I drive it somewhat reasonable.
