With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

What happened to getting the Tacoma? I'm sure the V6 will get at least that, and probably better. I manage to get 20mpg in the city with my 2.7L. That is with some really heavy E load range 265/75/r16 tires and a 3 inches of lift.
Well they were still owned by Ford when my car was built so....lol
It's still going to happen, I'm trying to find a good way out of this car but I don't have time for that right now, school got into test mode and it sucks. But I'm on top of it! I'm 100% that a Taco will get better mileage and I am car shopping currently for the best deals possible.

I know but it's not even old! It's only 9 months old...I rolled over 5,555 miles a day ago.

Haha, well I drive pretty damn good if I say so myself. I mean I haven't gotten into any accidents or been ticketed...yet *knocks on wood* and I've got plenty of friends who have totalled 2 cars or rolled their (Mazda3 sedan 3 times) cars.

Thank you! Somebody sees that this is pretty much where it should shift.

Or I could get a 2010 Mazda3...those things are basically a Toyota Matrix without the Toyota reliability/quality. But I always hated Matrices...and Corollas but liked the MZ3's. Oh well, live and learn.
