As gas prices have spiked in the last few years, many buyers are finding themselves more concerned with the fuel economy of their vehicles. The following graphs show the relative fuel economy of all new vehicles on the market. The bars represent the estimated city and highway mileage as published by the United States Environmental Protection Agency.

The EPA revised their estimates for the 2008 model year to reflect changes in driving habits. While the estimates have improved, driving habits, mechanical conditions, and climate changes will significantly alter the given mileage reported by any vehicle listed below.

Use this information for broad comparisons to see where your vehicle fits in the big picture. Our advice on fuel economy numbers is to use the smaller city number as a conservative estimate of what you may get under most driving circumstances.
