A friend of mine has a '94 Silverado 1500 he named "Smog". It's big, it's slow, but it's cool. There's one problem with it though.... A full tank is $95 for it up here in Redmond, WA. IDK how, but my friend showed me a receipt for that price. He has decided to sell his big old truck, and find something more efficient to drive. for about $4000-$4500, what would you suggest for him to try and get? He can drive stick, but he prefers auto.

Also, forgot to add. He's not one of us. he can't wrench on his own car, so reliability would be nice.

Miatas for your time.
