    Good info. I accept the fact that gas mileage is going to suck so the less trickery the better IMO but what'cha gonna do. If you decide to sell hit me up...

    I bought a 2011 odyssey with 128k miles for 10k over the summer - needed a vehicle that could accommodate the three kids. Wife and I have older manual cars, so got it as a third car. Drove at 65 mph from the Berkshire to Boston after purchasing it. With cylinder deactivation the mileage was awesome - 31 mpg. Better than my 335xi! It is fast enough, comfortable, more economical than expected and overall a great vehicle. My wife and I both found the Odyssey to drive much more like a car than the Sienna. Also, installed winter Blizzak DM-V2 and it was a tank with all the snow. Love the van and would buy it again.

    Driving from Niagara Falls with 6 people going 75mph we averaged 26mpg. Pretty awesome.

    We will be selling it at the end of Lacrosse season, so it will be for sale 6/1.

    What happened? This used to be the site to go to for spirited group rides that inevitably led to legal action of one sort or another against at least one participant. Now we discuss 401Ks and mini-vans. Anyway, who makes the best mobility scooter these days?

    That's outstanding. EPA guestimate says 22 average, 27 highway. 31 is a lot better than I'd ever expect given that guestimate.

    Maybe I have it all wrong..

    31 highway is what I saw in my old VW Jetta Wagon, at best. Also better than I ever saw from my 1.8l, 2200 lbs Miata!

    Space crunch isn't until December, unless something falls in my lap before then I'll be interested.

    Political threads. Made us all feel ashamed, responsible, knowledgeable, and old. Speaking of responsible, anyone know a place that does 'busa trike conversions??

    Yep, but that was me driving alone and sticking to the speed limit. I am still overall impressed.
