I have a 95 wagon AT. My combined city/highway mileage is about 27-28mpg. All highway i have gotten 32-33 mpg out of it. I would like to know if my mpg is good or bad? What are all you other wagons getting? Also if you could specify auto or manual tranny. Thanks

On our 92 with 1.9l and auto tranny, we get about 28 in town, and 36 or better on the highway. we dont use the a.c. since its dead. With our 94 1.9 w 5 speed tranny we get 29-30 in town, and close to 40 mpg on really open roads - not using the a.c. If we use the a.c. it drops to less than 36 on the interstate. Thats cruising at 55-60 mph, even though the speed limit in West Texas on I-10 is usually 80 mph.

My '97 wagon with a 5 speed manual is used basically for highway trips. If I keep the cruise set at 55 mph I can get about 43-45 mpg with the A/C going and about 47-49 mpg if it's cool enough that I don't need it. If I run 65-75 mph with the A/C it will get about 40-42 mpg. Remember this is strictly highway mileage. Combined local driving city/rural roads about 33-35 mpg.

My 94 auto wagon is getting us 26-30 around town. Haven't had it on the highway yet since I am working out some suspension issues.

I previously had a '93 sedan with a 5 speed. Wifey got 30 ish around town and way better on the highway.
My '94 wagon with Auto and a/c gets about 28 in town. I use the a/c sparingly... it feels like driving with a foot on the brake when that is switched on.

Used to get 30-32 but last 3/4 fillups been pegging around 27-28mpg.

I've noticed a lack of power lately, sometimes light jerking during light acceleration so something is going on. Loose battery clamp, check hoses, ignition wires, clean MAF, check DPFE sensor, check exhaust manifold bolts, are on the post-Winter checkup list. Plug wear is unlikely. If anything at all, always something simple.

EDIT: Whoops. Just noticed this is a Wagon forum. Above is '94 Sedan manual.

94 Auto wagon gets anywhere from 25-37, which is a mixture of city driving, and 40 mph straightaways(Well... curvyaways. No stops, though.). it all depends on if the weather stays warm. If it stays warm for a week or two, I get over 30.

When I first got mine was getting about 25 mpg, currently getting 27-29 mpg rural/city driving while using the A/C.
Been using Lucas fuel treatment on every fill up (8-10 gallons). Replaced air and breather filter, cleaned throttle body and MAF sensor. Also cleaned condenser and radiator fins with dish soap and warm water mixture and the A/C went from blowing cool to frigid cold!
