2006 KIA Optima - in this cold weather I only average 24 mpg (even on highway), although this car is rated at 24 (city)/34 (highway). That sucks.

I used to have a Ford Escort with a small tank of just 10 gallons and I would push it to the limit every time (when the pointer was like at "0" for a while) and a few times I filled up close to 9.9 gallons, which means I was close to stalling. It's hilly where I drive, so I found a way to know how much gas I have left by checking the fuel gauge pointer when I drive uphill. Even if it's at "0" on a flat surface I check it when I'm going uphill and if it's moving up just slightly I know I can still make it to the gas station.
