    I had an '80 with a manual(column shifter) 3- speed. It wouldn't pull the hat off your head in first(geared too high!) but got 24 mpg on the road. It made about 8 trips to Fla and the mileage was figured over the whole trip. If I could have gotten a 4-speed overdrive I would still have it. Let alone a 5-speed.<br> By slow filling both tanks, I could drive the 1,000 miles to Orlando!
