What do you drive, and how much MPG do you get?

Just curious how efficient (or inefficient, as the case may be) your motor vehicles are.

I drive a Ford Fusion and get about 20.9 miles per gallon, according to my display. This seems a little low to me... but I'm not sure.

edit: I should add... it creeps up when I do some highway driving... up to about 22.0 - 22.5.

Re: What do you drive, and how much MPG do you get?

I drive a 2012 Kia Optima SX and I get like 21 MPH on mostly short distance city driving. My display number says higher than that but the program I use to track MPG is usually at least 2 MPG lower than my display.

I drive a 2011 Subaru WRX, and I'm lucky to see 18MPG, though I drive it like I stole it..

Re: What do you drive, and how much MPG do you get?

2012 Scion tc, between 25-29 MPG. I'm driving in the suburbs so it's a mix of locals and expressways.

Re: What do you drive, and how much MPG do you get?

2015 Nissan Frontier -- its 4.0 liter V6 engine gets about 16-19 MPG, depending on time of year and how much freeway driving I do (summer blend gas gives me better mileage vs. winter blends).

Re: What do you drive, and how much MPG do you get?

Toyota Tacoma, 2015, Automatic, 4WD - around 20mpg in town, 22mpg on the highway. It's a 4-banger, so I feel like it should be higher than that, but, it is what it is.

Re: What do you drive, and how much MPG do you get?

I drive a 2016 Toyota Camry. Mileage is somewhere under 30 (27?). I took a couple cross country trips last year--drove to NYC, then 6 months later, drove back to Oregon looping down to the southwest on the way. On those long highway stretches, my mpg went way up.

Re: What do you drive, and how much MPG do you get?

I had a VW Jetta TDI that I did a buyback with due to emissions, but I really miss that car. Mind you, it had 215,000 miles and needed to go regardless, but I really miss having the 41 mpg. I have a current model vw GTI now, it's fun as can be but only gets about 24 mpg in the city (about 33 on the highway though).

Re: What do you drive, and how much MPG do you get?

Anyone have a newer Civic? I'm in the market and have been very curious how those perform. My wife had a much older one and did very well for over 10 years.

Re: What do you drive, and how much MPG do you get?

2016 Nissan Rogue SL. I reset my MPG calculation each tank, but I have been getting 26-27 overall. A lot of suburb driving. I drive in Eco mode all the time.
When I was car shopping I looked into a hybrid model but the math didn't work out for me.

Do you ever encounter problems finding ethanol-free gas? In my area its somewhat difficult to find (and sometimes about $1 more a gallon).
