Buy a Prius and make the payment with the money you save on gas. These vans don't get good mileage, they just don't. The absolute best mileage numbers I've ever seen from a G20 was about 15mpg.

Well, you could install a turbo diesel, but it would take a long time to recver the cost of conversion in fuel savings.


Windows- they're what make a van worth owning!

You may already have all improvements you could want with a late model, overdrive trans, TBI injection. All you can do is keep it in good tune. I don't want to know my gas millage, I spend 120 in gas every week. I could make a 480 dollar car payment with that and if I quit smoking at 11 a pack I would have another 660 for a 1000 dollar car payment. I should just quit smoking so I could lead foot all the time in the van.

With keeping every thing stock the best you can do is keep tuned, tires inflated & watch your driving habits. I take it it has a ele overdrive tranny being a '95.

10 - 12 is the best you can get driving a stock 350 brick.

Now if you want to throw money at it, thats another story......
