When I bought my Cruze the mileage capability reminded me of my 1979 Ford Fiesta Sport 1.6 litre 4 speed manual. The best that approx 1800 lb car could do on the highway was 42 mpg. What is truly amazing is how my ECO at 2964 lbs with a 1.4 litre has way better performance and fuel economy. Efficiency is way up on modern cars. The Fiesta was fun but was my last Ford - it rusted out very quickly.
