Your Car Fuel Consumption

Sun Mar 09, 2008 2:00 pm

I have a Yaris 1.3 M-MT 2007


396,1 km
Liters 22,81

Fuel consumption 17,36 km/l or 5,76 l/100 km

I paid for it € 31,57 (€ 1,384 per liter)

I have to say that I've driven very very "softly".

Mercedes Benz C350! On average it uses between 12l/ 100 km and 14l/ 100km and on the Autobahn at 210 km/h it goes up to 17l/ 100km

7.9-8.4 lt/100km but most of the driving is in traffic which is not the most economical way of driving. I get about 5.5-6.5 lt/100km when driving on the motorway. It is a Renault Clio by the way.

This is going to cause confusion! Some countries use litres per 100km, some kilometres per litre, and whilst in both Britain and America we use miles per gallon, the British and American gallon are of different sizes!

Anyway, for what it's worth, I'm supposed to get about 28mpg from mine. In reality it's nearer 25.

Averages about 14-15 miles per gallon...Or about 6 km/L...Or about 17 L/100km. Mainly city use.

My pickup gets about 24 mpg. Gas here in Kentucky is $3.15 a gallon for 87 octane regular. Making a 620 mile trip can run into some serious cash.


E10 is 2.95 a gallon at home and there is a move on to start selling E20, rumor is that it works about the same.

Well my trusty Fiesta is very good when it comes to MPG.

With a 40 Litre tank, and when driven properly I can squeeze 400 miles out of it on ocassions,
though more likely to be 370-380 or so.

So, somwhere around the 40-45 MPG mark which is a great thing given the cost of fuel now!

01 A4 1.8T , on a good drive without pushing the turbo i could get a good 25-30mpg highway.

when i do push the turbo to 18psi i probably get around 12mpg city/hwy

i never conserve though, i always drive to have fun.

car has 115k miles

My parents are on vacation at the moment so I am driving my father's Audi A8 every day. I will not know - and frankly I don't care - how many liters I blew into the air during the last week (I had to refuel a 90 liter tank after just 5 days).  rotfl

I'm getting 10.9 L/100km, or 25.9 MPG (imperial), or 21.6 MPG (US) on average according to my computer, but realistically driving around the city like I am a lot at the moment it's about 22mpg (imperial), rising to around 30 on a long motorway run. I have managed to burn £10 of fuel, so about 9.7 litres, in 15 minutes before-that's what happens when you down the accelerator on a motorway and keep it there. As a general rule if I don't really use the turbo, it's not too bad. For the record, I drive a Saab 9000 2.3 Turbo.

Just under 50mpg typically with a Civic Hybrid. These days it's tougher to break 50 as it's very hard to find gas that's not E10 any more and it just doesn't work as well as the real thing.

1994 Honda Civic (auto)
1.5L I-4
~33MPG on highway trips

1998 Lexus ES300 (auto)
3.0L V-6
23-24MPG on a former work commute of about 35 miles per direction (appox 60% highway).

1999 Mazda MX-5 Miata (manual)
1.8L I-4
It has fairly short gearing and obviously isn't made for the highway.
~26MPG highway cruise (top down, closer to 30 top up)
~20MPG driving briskly on secondary roads

2002 BMW 330Ci (manual)
3.0 I-6
~20MPG on the trip computer but I live about 5 minutes from work and take a lot of short trips. This consumption figure probably represents about 30% highway driving.


All of the above figures are realized while operating in significantly undulating terrain. Much of the highway driving with the Lexus was done on a stretch with 1 mile+ climb intervals of significant grade.

Mixed driving (which includes the usual Los Angeles freeway gridlock) is averaging 27 MPG for my SX4 Sport. I got 33 MPG on a high-speed (80+ mph) Interstate 10 cruise across the desert to Phoenix about a month ago. I have got to say that I love this Suzuki's gas mileage, especially since regular unleaded gas is now $3.55 a gallon here in Los Angeles!

VW Touareg 4.2L 310hp V8. About 12.5 mpg long term. Best highway mileage I ever had was 17.0 I stayed at about 60mph the whole time but most of the time on the highway in that car I go around 90mph.

My old Land Rover 110 uses about 9.5 litres of Diesel for 100 km if I drive it on the Autobahn or if I'm going for distance (engine properly warmed up). When I drive to work (25 km), the engine reaches it's operating temperature on the last 5 km, so I'm using a bit more, around 10 liters per 100 km.

2004 Range Rover 4.4 HSE (282 hp 4.4 liter V8) (my partner's) around 14 mpg average (his commute is primarily freeway, about 50 miles round trip each day).
