The EPA estimates and manufacturers' are a good barometer BUT, what MPG/MPL did you really get on your last tank of fuel?

Fiance's 2007 Yaris 567 kms / 36.37 litres (36.67 MPG)... 80 km (50 mile) commute one way, mixed highway... sure beats my 2012 MB C250 4MATIC, which has been relegated to weekend use...

Greg531 sez....
......If you post your mpg....say what model and year, and with two or more engines available...what engine do you have.....it helps to compare cars!

Good point...Can't compare the unknown...

2013 VW Passat 2.0 litre TDI (Mid-Size) 52.1 MPG "Thanksgiving" trip.
Average for the last 1-1/2 years ...48.2 MPG
6-7 cents per mile varies on #2 Diesel prices.

The itty-bitty car is a 2011 Ford Fiesta 1.6 litre (40-43 MPG)

I usually try and give specifics (must of ate too much-got lazy)

Thanksgiving... 400+ miles...around $25.00 in fuel
That figures around 6-7 cents a mile.
I could have taken the itty-bitty car and would have saved

I drive a 2006 Honda Accord EX-L two-door with a 4our cylinder engine and automatic transmission. It currently has over 261,000 miles on the odometer. The EPA estimate is 28 miles per gallon. My overall gas mileage is 31.7 miles per gallon (using the Firestone Mileage Tracker app) in a combination of highway and city driving. My most recent three tanks of gas calculated out to 32.9, 33.1 and 30.8 miles per gallon.

35.3mpg 2008 Toyota Yaris 46K miles on the ODO (not a fringing Hybrid)

EPA rating advertised as 29mpg city/36 highway mpg

Best little car I've ever owned. Minimal maintenance, very reliable. Never averaged less than 30mpg combined driving

47.1 . . . the EPA rating of 28 city-38 highway are just rediculous on this car. But still many disciples of the EPA think auots have caught up to manuals.

2012 Hyundai Sonata Limited with 2.4L 4-cyl NON-turbo engine

According to my Fuel Logbook it has gone 8422 Miles since January 1st at an average of 24.31 MPG.

BUT - I did an 812 mile round trip from (a little south of) Boston to Philadelphia this weekend. FOUR of us adults left early Friday morning and we arrived back home late last night. Mostly highway driving but we did spend a fair amount of time IN the city and there were some substantial traffic delays in a couple of areas both on and off the highways. Filled up just before we left, once yesterday on the way home, and then again this morning. Total fuel used was 27.749 gallons which my calculator says was an average of 29.262 MPG for the entire trip. I'm pretty happy with that. From the fillup en route yesterday to the fillup this morning gave an average of 33.17 MPG and I am VERY HAPPY with that. According to the on-dash computer our average speed for that tankful was 59 MPH, and we were running right at 65 for most of the highway travel. BTW, that was 65MPH according to my GPS which I trust much more than the speedometer in the car - it said we were doing just a hair under 70. If I factor in a bit of an adjustment to that overall average speed it would probably be a little closer to 55MPH.

It so happened 32.2 on the one vehicle with not much concern, meaning I paid little attention as I would have ordinarily driving, I did sum (rushing around) before the colder weather, getting some projects done. Thankful fuel prices have dropped a better percentage.
