Not to point out the obvious, but it does have 4 less jugs and 1/2 the
weight of a V8Q.  If you're getting 25-30 MPG you're not driving it right
either. ;-)

With that reasoning, it's pretty bad mileage compared to...oh...a Geo
Metro, 3 cylinders (only one less than a 944) and they get from 50-60MPG.
