Acura TL Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2012 4dr Sedan 305-horsepower 3.7L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Mileage has been pretty good to great. At 65 mph with cruise control on a smooth, level highway I've gotten 33 mpg. 80mph (legally in west Texas) on cruise control I've gotten 24 to 25 mpg depending on wind. Between those, 70 to 75 mph on a highway, I get about the EPA highway rating of 26 mpg. In mixed highway and traffic I routinely get 23 mpg (this is my usual commute). Straight stop-and-go errand-running I get 17 to 18 mpg, which is pretty close to the EPA city rating. I tend to be somewhat light on the throttle most of the time. see full Acura TL review

Coming from a 3.2 engine that regularly got 22-23 mpg it it a bit disappointing that the 2010 TL with the 3.7 gets only 18-19 mpg. I would expect with the engine technologies improvement over the years that the bigger engine could get better fuel mileage. see full Acura TL review

Besides price, this was my primary reason for choosing the TSX over the TL. I don't have a lead foot but average about 25-27 mpg overall. On the freeway I'm easily over 30mpg and can run 500 miles on a tank of gas. see full Acura TSX review
