You can go here to check mpg for just about any vehicle.
http://www.fueleconomy.gov/

You can add the hwy mpg and city mpg together and divide by two.
"1985 tercel Wagon 4WD Manual" 29+23=52/2=26
The epa numbers are typically lower than what you will get by averaging the gallons vs. trip odometer at fill-up. Add 4 to 7 mpg to the above formula and your in the ballpark. Just keep in mind that a 4WD will be less fuel efficient.

1996 Paseo 5E-FE 270,xxx miles - LR parking brake seized. Time for new cables
1993 Camry LE 5S-FE 281,xxx miles - Time to re-seal spark plug tubes. Ugh I hate winter...
1997 Mazda B2300 219,xxx miles - Engine/trans back in, drives great

Most of us get 28-31 mpg in combined, real-world driving. Of course, our cars ARE approaching 30 years of age...
I have a Weber 32/36 (difficult in your state) for smoothness rather than increased power and get 26-29 mpg in combined driving.
The '84-'85 are a mile or two more economical because of the different gear ratios.

AND - see PM for some more info...
