NEVER GOT 20mpg in any of them, but got close in my '71 with the 6 cyl, but not 20mpg.

As I near the big 50 in the next few years, however, I have contemplated getting a beater gas saver and only driving the Broncos on the weekends..... hard to make the switch at this point though as my kids love being taken to school in a Bronco. It it is a life style choice I guess (gee, never thought I would say that)!
Right on Mac...I'm at year 7 for an EB as my DD...there isn't a price you can put on it...I have had commutes from 10 miles to 30 miles...the way I look at it...The longer the commute, the longer I'm enjoying driving my bronco (even in the rain). My top is off, no carpet, no A/C, just enjoying the ride...Plus I love the look from all the moms in their minivans as I pull up to drop off my 3 year old and 3 month old at school...priceless!
