I am trying to find out if there is a place on the internet where I can find the Miles Per Gallon on a 1986 Plymouth Fifth Avenue. It has a 5.2 V8 engine. I think that translates to a 318 cubic engine.

My efforts so far have been unsuccessful to find anything on the web and I've checked the owners manual and am unable to find it there either.

The reason I am asking this is a family member wishes to buy a new car to replace the above one. Gas mileage is a definite consideration. She was hoping that the 1999 Buick Century (shes interested in this car) had a 4 cylinder but the dealer says it only carries a 6 cylinder. Mileage is 20 MPG in the city on the Buick Century 6 cylinder. I have a 2000 Honda Accord 4 cylinder VTEC engine that gets 23 MPG city for one comparison of a 4 cylinder to the 6 cylinder on the Buick.

We are hoping to find out what the 1986 Fifth Avenue 5.2 liter V8 gets to better compare it to the 1999 Buick Century to make our decision. The big question is is the 6 cylinder MPG good enough to make a positive buy decision. I'm sure its better than the 1986 Fifth ave 8 cylinder but by how much?

If anyone can direct us to somewhere, hopefully on the internet, that might list the Miles Per Gallon on the 1986 Plymouth Fifth Avenue 5.2 liter V8 we would be grateful.

Thank in advance for input.

Best Regards,
- Mike
