    Willys talked about fuel economy in the late 1940s and, before that in the 1930s as this ad shows: … Maybe this was the case in the 1920s also (I haven’t researched it) … I guess there have always been some who were gas-price sensitive?

    Yes, there were guys trying to lessen their fuel costs back when has was .25 cents a gallon. Look at the circa 1960 VW and Rambler ads.

    Recently I saw a 1914 as for Stutz cars, and they were highlighting something like 12mph and a quart of oil every 100 miles. And Stutz cars were high-end cars, so the owners could likely afford the fuel.
    I think when you go back that far, the economy claims have less to do with money and more to do with showing how advanced their engines were.
