2008 4dr Wagon 150-horsepower 2.4L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
For a car that weights over 3100 lbs and has this much room inside, the 22-24 mpg is not bad. see full Chrysler PT Cruiser review

For size of vehicle, fuel economy should be 40% better. see full Chrysler PT Cruiser review

For a 4 cyl engine it really show get a little better MPG. see full Chrysler PT Cruiser review
2007 2dr Convertible turbocharged 180hp 2.4L I4

It averages around 15 in town and no better than 20 highway. This is way behind the curve of other more modern small cars. see full Chrysler PT Cruiser review
2006 4dr Wagon 150-horsepower 2.4L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
This thing had a 4 cylinder but sucked fuel like a big V-6 or larger. Is this the result of cinder-block like aerodynamics? see full Chrysler PT Cruiser review
2006 2dr Convertible turbocharged 230hp 2.4L I4
4-speed shiftable automatic FWD
One would expect to get much better mileage from a car this size, however 17 city/23 highway is what I actually get. see full Chrysler PT Cruiser review

Manual transmission with standard 4 cylender engine averages 25 mpg. Power is just adequate. see full Chrysler PT Cruiser review

Poor highway fuel economy, compared to Vibe. Poor city fuel economy, compared to Vibe. see full Chrysler PT Cruiser review
2002 4dr Wagon 150-horsepower 2.4L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
19 MPG for a fairly small, four-cylinder engine is barely acceptable. No advances in engine technology here. At least, none from the last 20 years. When driven gently, garaged and driven about 20 miles round trip per day (10% highway): 20 MPG. :-( see full Chrysler PT Cruiser review
