René wants the x- and y-axes to cross at "origo". That is a 
reasonable wish in many situations.

To include 0,0 in the axes:

. twoway scatter mpg weight , xlabel(0(1000)5000) ylabel(0(10)40)

Now 0,0 is included, but you might want axes to cross 
exactly at 0,0. Use the plotregion(margin()) option:

. twoway scatter mpg weight , xlabel(0(1000)5000) ylabel(0(10)40) plotregion(margin(l=0 b=0))

Also, the xscale(range()) option may be useful to you.

Hope this helps,

Svend
