You have plenty to choose from. Check link below: Fuel Economy It's not a man-car, but I would drive a Toyota Corolla for commuting. Currently, I drive an '08 Mustang GT and Nissan Pathfinder. I don't work that far, so fuel cost is bearable for me. My wife drives a 2005 Corolla, and when I get to drive it sometimes, I'm impressed. It's light, peppy, and most of all gets 35-40mpg, highway.
