My 24MS (No longer offered) started out getting 12-12.5 mpg. There is a break-in period. When I traded I had 7400 on the clock and was getting 15.5-15.8 mpg. I'm a conservative driver, however - if you like to "lead the pack" you'll get less
. If towing, I'd subtract 1-1.5 mpg from these figures towing a moderate size car (I towed a Mazda3). As to price, you can get a good feel for pricing by checking out what on-line retailers are quoting, and that's usually not their BEST price. I'd shoot for no less than 30% off MSRP. And make sure it's a manufacturers' sticker, rather than one the dealer generates. Taxes and transport are additional and dealers don't discount those items. Be prepared to walk, make sure they have your number - guarantee they'll call you back.
