Hello James,
The Iron Duke is one of the most reliable engines ever made, it doesn't even have a timing belt or timing chain to go bad like most 4 bangers do, just 2 gears. About as reliable as a stone. And, as other members pointed out, should have a top speed around 100 - 110 MPH when in good tune. Not a race car, but easily keep up with traffic anywhere in easy driving. Keep it full of coolant/antifreeze and oil to protect it. Fieros require a special procedure to make sure the cooling system is full of coolant. Fiero is a special fun car and you should tell your relatives that. I'm in Toledo, Ohio, USA and have an '85 Fiero, EFI Iron Duke, 5 speed manual, white w/ grey cloth interior, turbine style wheels. Also have a '77 Pontiac Astre Formula Safari Station wagon, carb'd Iron Duke, 5 speed manual, posi. They were rated 28 MPG city and 34 MPG hiway which was very high for '77. Good MPG started to come back in 1976 as MPG had been horrible in '71 - '75 cars and stayed bad in some vehicles to even as late as 2000... The little Fiero should get even better MPG...
