You don't need the y term in the -predictnl- statement.

. predictnl fit = _b[beta]*exp(_b[alpha]*mpg), ci(lb ub)

How about using -nlcom-.  For example, if price = 1000:

. nlcom (ln(1000/_b[beta]))/_b[alpha]

Thanks very much for the advice, Scott.  Those solutions were exactly
what I was looking for.
