What were you expecting? Each car does have ratings.

38 city, 42 - 48 mpg hwy.

'09 Jetta TDI.

A V6 generally gets lesser mpg than a 4 cyl, so 27 mpg seems reasonable.

Blended hwy/urban average since I bought the car: 36.6 mpg. The car has a built in MPG computer so this should be accurate. That's pretty awesome and better than the EPA rating.

MPG computer tends to be a weak estimate, it's better to measure it yourself.

My 2010 Altima reports 32mpg freeway all of the time (80mph) but really it's more like 30.5 / 31mpg. Tends to be more like 26-27 in the city.

No, it's pretty accurate. It's a 10 gallon tank so the math is easy.

Re: How many mpg do you get?

2010 Ford Escape LTD
Driven 40 miles each way to/from work. Frequently stomping on the gas to pass slow-pokes on the 2-lane stretches, or zooming down sideroad shortcuts to get ahead of construction vehicles, all with lots of hills.



Bought the car used from Enterprise with 30+K on it 3 years ago and have tracked my mileage via Fuelly ever since. I have averaged 20-25 mpg throughout my ownership:

2006 Honda Civic - around 24-26, all surface streets and bad traffic.
2014 Ford Explorer - 17.4 in total average since we got it in late March. Almost all surface streets and bad traffic.

No, I'd be getting 37 mpg most of the time. The difference is that Ethanol dogs in freezing weather.

I haven't seen anything but 10% ethanol for at least five years.
