Man! Bikes are the way but you'll be so tempted to go fast. Get a slow *** Honda that gives u 100000 a gallon, but 100HP lol. I've seen a lot of hondas on craigslist for dirt cheap right now

Buy a VW golf or jetta diesel. You will get better mpg then the Honda. It will last longer and you can run it on almost anything. I get my bio diesel for $2.65 a gal. You can run even used motor oil/ATF in it for about $1.50 a gallon. Plus smog is easy with those. They don't do hardly crap.

Plenty of those civics, corollas, old accords, camrys available for that price. the mileage will be above 100k though.

I have a buddy with a 1994 Accord light blue, 5 speed manual, 230k miles. He wants $2000, let me know if you're interested.

You should swoop up LSgun's regal if it's still for sale.
