For a teenager that does lots of driving for parttime job and to school, needed a vehicel that was large enough to be safe in traffic, yet give good gas mileage. see full Honda Element review

Sure wish I could get 30 MPG in this thing instead of 20 (though I have gotten 26 on long trips as long as I don't let my wife drive) see full Honda Element review

This is my only major gripe with the vehicle... I seem to get a consistent 22mpg, whether it is city driving, long flat highways, or mountains. If I go out of my way to drive conservatively, or use a medium-to-heavy foot with the aid conditioner, the difference is completely negligible... it's pretty much always 22mpg. see full Honda Element review

For a 4 cylinder vehicle, the mpg could be better. (How about a 6th gear Scion!?). I average between 24-28, have gotten over 30 at times. Gas mileage is alright if you stay under 70mph on the interstate/highways. I actually get the best mileage in town see full Scion xB review

Best that can be said is that fuel economy is average for car of its weight and engine displacement. Automatic transmission only available in 4sp w/OD. A 5 or 6 speed tranny would be better. see full Scion xB review
