    plus some parts of the roads in Wisconsin have to be left untreated? so that snowmobiles can cross
    or how does that actually work? ... its been a long time since I recall seeing that

    oh! and i did finally find that fuel leak in the Corolla after dumping a half gallon on the gas station concrete ground the other day
    its not in a good spot AT ALL i think
    now i have to figure out how to save the $50 Corolla, it went from a $500 car to a basic salvage once I found the leak :(

    Yeah, snow mobile routes are really popular in the area I'm from as well as up north, once again the dirt works really great for that, haha. I'm not super sure what they do for all of the roads, I do know the routes are treated like roads though; you have to register if you're passenger/commercial/recreational etc. but people just usually use them as a means to get to lakes and stuff to ice fish.

    Idk what kinda condition the rolly is in, but if it's not in immaculate shape otherwise and you can't fix it for cheap, I'd probably start looking for another. Totally recommend a 9th gen ;)

    ya the car is in 'well loved' condition of 23 years, got it as a high mileage dealer deal car in late 1996 and abused it in the city stop and go traffic
    the heater works like a dream still, unlike the 79 Corolla hatch i once had and needed to dump when the brakes went bad at 25 years old (had it for about 12) and no working heat or defrost , it was the best winter pizza delivery car complete with RWD and no power steering haha
    the fuel leak i found its part of the actual fuel tank that the overflow tube/vent (or whatever it is) that connects by rubber hose to filler tube. its about a qTip size hole way up there on the top... gonna try and see if a JB weld can patch it up for a few years until something real major goes bad engine/transmission
    it has had extensive repair work done over the past 5 years that i have not yet gotten adequate miles out of. exhaust, brake lines, suspension, tires
    rear seats have to be removed i think to take out the fuel tank, but nothing else seems to leak on the output side, fuel pump is ok still

    i had been looking at the new Corolla hatchback for a little sporty type looking car with fuel efficiencies but the color choices coupled with the MT availability are a bit difficult to find it seems!
    and then there is the 'probably' expected cash outlays on my old Tacoma in the next 1 - 2 years that i have to figure in to handle new car payments

    i do like the looks of the C-HR, do they make these with MT?
    don't know a whole lot about em but look to be about similar priced
    looks like a rear door handle on the roof

    AWD is CVT only, I believe. The FWD 1.2 turbo is manual.

    That’s about what I get. Poor overdrive ratio and a chronic inability to stay off the throttle.

    We should check what I get when I drive on our next vacation. I bet I get 20 ;)

    Idk how long you've been checking it, but if it's only recent the wind could be impacting it I'm sure. I told you I got shit miles in the Corolla on the way to OP last week

    I was just curious, I figured it would be bad, but not that bad lol. Though I have little frame of reference. I think I averaged 18-20 on my texas trip.
