Best Gas Mileage Preludes 2g or 3g?

So I'm trying to convince a friend/coworker of mine, who currently owns a POS Nissan Pulsar, to either get a 80's Fiero or Prelude. He gets really ****ty gas mileage and lives a good distance from the office and I know Fieros get upwards of 38-42mpg and I've read some of Preludes get something like 38mpg.

Out of the 2nd and 3rd gen Preludes which get the best mileage? I see 2nd and 3rd gens on craigslist for about $2000 and that's about the limit for his price range currently.

hmm.. thats a pretty good question, i wish i could get 38 out of my 3rd gen, im lucky to get 25 if i baby it, see if you can find a 4th gen prelude s for him those f22s do pretty good on gas, and it still shouldn't hurt the wallet too much

Re: Best Gas Mileage Preludes 2g or 3g?

My old Civic got 38mpg's, if you want a true gas saver, you cannot go wrong with a Civic 1.6 banger.

My 3g lude gets about 25ish, just like Jacob does.
My 2g, i dunno, i haven't really driven it much lol

Sick...one of the main reason why i loved my Civic was because of the MPG's and the freakish-efficiency of those motor.

Re: Best Gas Mileage Preludes 2g or 3g?

Ferio FTW, sorry i am a prelude guy but a fiero can look like this
http://www.cardomain.com/ride/551157
It is a car i built with my dad back when, if you click on my profile you will see my old prelude and the NSX!!!
But either or are good cars, the 88 (last year made) fireo gt had the lotus suspension. Early years were know to catch on fire.
Even 4th gen ludes get good gas millage 25-30 and if you dont gem on them i have gotten mid 30's
