    Also my co-worker had a 2015 mirage on the alignment rack aaaaaand it was out on the right rear like all the rest I've ever seen.

    Eggman! Can't believe you took an i-car for a test drive and did not fall in love with it lol! Not sure where to write about the i-MiEV
    but without trying to hijack the thread I will say I absolutely love that thing and it turns out very useful as a truck for hauling things like
    my concrete mixing ( rough and bulky) wheel barrow, up to 6 bags of 80 lbs concrete (like it is not even back there), 10 foot 4x4
    posts (could not close the hatch on those of course) etc. So even with it's wimpy range I wish I would've found out sooner how
    cheap the used ones are and got one already. Gotta have a thick skin though because people will hate on it based on the looks,
    then they find out it's yours and apologize I get a kick out that though! ( macho first,functionality never matters to most).

    Otlander sports, like the Mirage in my experience that I see coming in to the shop are mostly customer induced issues.
    The only issue we have seen were around 2015 with the then new CVT 8 transmissions were failing but I think they worked the
    bugs out for the later models! Worth buying new because of the first/original owner warranty you get plus the price difference between new and used were not that great!
    Sorry for the hijack!
    I'd love to hear more about the elec. Car with pics in it's own thread!!! I think we all would when you have time.

    I'd drive one of those for sure. Super rare and cool and my commute is only 7mi each way

    I used to keep track of some of the cars' mileage when I'd do oil changes. The best I saw was a 17' cvt that kept getting a consistent 5.1l/100kms/46mpg according to the trip B. It seems pretty good for a company owned delivery car.

    Pretty good, especially if that's 4 seasons.

    There's three I know of.

    Mitsubish MZ314528 (sorry, I don't have a link...)
    ZeroStart 3100111 - it's what I'm using.
    Kats 11812

    Edit:
    1. I plug mine in roughly 90 minutes before I leave for work. Any more is a waste of electricity as the motor won't get much hotter.
    2. I use mine year-round.
    3. I would also consider/recommend an oil pan heater pad.

    I was sooo close when I had my loaned Mirage from Mitsu... Sadly, just not quite there. 49.0 mpg.

    49 rounds to 50, doesn't it?

    I've gotten over 50 on a tank many times, but my lifetime average so far is 48.1 according to fuelly. My best tank was 55.4mpg, which I achieved when taking the scenic route home from Missouri. I usually try to drive 55mph unless I'm on a long trip, then I'll go 70, but I had time and purposely tried for that one! My Mirage is too precious to drive in winter yet so I don't have that working against my average.

    Hello spork. Long time no see.

    What do you use for winter - a Metro?

    Nice going, spork.

    I'm the same: usually take the scenic route at laid back cruising speeds unless going on a longer trip.

    Yup. Avoiding freezing weather makes a huge difference.
