What mileage?

I'm just wondering what kind of mileage you guys are getting from your Zuk's? Particularly the guys running the orig. 1.3 engine with larger tires (31"+) I'm looking to buy one shortly and am currently driving about 1000km/week. Just trying to figure out how much I'll save in gas vs.'91 V6 $runner. oops... 4Runner.

I don't have any in mind yet. I've just started looking as I'm sick of paying for the gas in my toy. I have an investment I'm cashing in very shortly so I figured I could buy a Sami before selling the toy. 8g is a bit outa my league right now. I'm in the midst of paying for a wedding right now too. I'd be interested in more info on the LWB though. Lifted? Tires? Mileage? Rust? Pics? $? Hard/soft top? If you could pass on my e-mail and ask him to send some more info & pics that would be great.

Thanks for coming out Ray, but that really doesn't tell me anything.

I don't doubt that. My 3L is a PIG! I'm never in much of a hurry though, weekends it's time to take it slow and weekdays... well... I'm just going to work, what's the rush?
I'm thinking I may pick up a Swift or something CHEAP for a commuter.
