A new car!

Bought a new car last night, a nifty 2004 Chevy Aveo. I seem to have a thing for Chevys. I'm selling an S-10 pickup, I still own my S-10 Blazer, and now I have an economy car by the same manufacturer. While I love my Blazer, the gas milage isn't all that much to speak of. It's not as bad as a Hummer (10 miles per gallon) but it's still not great. I do have a motorscooter, Honda Elite 50cc, that gets around 100 miles per gallon, so when I go somewhere, that's what I usually drive. Besides, it's a kick to ride.

Meanwhile the Aveo gets 26/34 miles per gallon city/freeway. Not bad, and since my wife will be driving it more than I am, we'll spend a lot less on gas per month than we were before.


I own a Chevy blazer, 4x4 4door 4.3litre 91ish variety. Far cry from the 22mpg city driving I had with the ole' 86 new yorker. Currently I get only about 14mpg, when the U.S. EPA website lists it at supposing to have 17. Oh well.
Anyway, should you need any help with your blazer I've found http://www.s10blazers.com/ to have a good, albeit small, forum community.
