    Hi there - Can't speak for this dealer, I'm not sure how he's getting those numbers. I know that over 3 tanks of gas that I've put in the truck so far, I'm getting about 36-37 mpg. I haven't been gentle either, and there's been a bunch of highway speeds involved. I suspect that if I could back off a little bit on the rabbit starts (this thing is too fun to drive) and stay off the highway then it'd likely be a little bit higher. I doubt I'd ever hit 50 tho.

    I've done plugs, dist cap, rotor, valve adjust, air cleaner and adjust carb. It all helps. I've driven the 3 cyl Suzuki cars for years. Gotta keep the plugs etc fresh to keep mileage up. These trucks seem to get te best mileage at 80kph.

    From Sorel Quebec

    I'm from Sorel in Quebec. I've had my Suzuki Carry 1990 for about 2 weeks and love it. It's suppose to have 1996 mechanic on it. Changed the 12" wheels for some 14" steel rims wrapped in 175-65R14 winter tires. It will be used on my 60 acres woodlot and to run around town. I figure it will be better on gas than my Ford Expedition ! Hahaha... At first I was looking at those side by side ATVs. But figured that at half the price of a new one and it's road legal... Might as well go for it. Checked the speed with the GPS before and after puting the 14" on. With the 12" rim the GPS would read 80 km/h and 87 km/h on the speedometer. Puting the 14" rims brought the two speeds together.

    Just came in from gatering some branches on the lot and let me say it's much easier with the Carry. I use to do it with a little trailer. So I couldn't go in the thick wood to get something and back out easly. But with the mini-truck I can go in where I want and back out in a snap.

    We are around 4 or 5 here in the region now. I got mine from a dealer near Shawinigan. A very nice bunch of guys...
