Just don't seem to be able to hit any of the gas mileage reported amounts. 10 to 15 litres per 100 KM seems to be the norm with combined city and highway driving. Dealer keeps telling me I need to "break" the vehicle in to get good gas mileage. Range odometer doesn't reset to 591 kms on fuel ups either. Takes several fill ups before it seems to work correctly for a while. Dealer can't find any issues with it. see full Hyundai Elantra review

This is one of the most disappointing aspects of the 2012. The Active Eco is no longer anautomatic feature, and I've found I don't get the great gas mileage that I used to. I would consistently get 40mpg highway, and about 30 mpg in the city. Now I get 32 highway, 28 city. My parents live an hour and a half away, and I have other family living further away. I find it frustrating that I don't get the great mileage I did previously, especially since gas prices just keep going up. see full Hyundai Elantra review

Engine is 132HP PZEV, not 138 SULEV. Diff in power seems smal but is significant for this car. Mileage worse AND power is less. Unfortunately, states dictate what you can get; CA emissions rule for PA = stupid cop-out/liberal cave-in to greenie-weenies see full Hyundai Elantra review

TrueDelta Reviews the Real Gas Mileage of the Toyota Corolla

Toyota Corolla Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearComment
2014 Those seeking to maximize fuel economy should check out the Corolla LE Eco, with EPA ratings for 30 mpg city, 42 highway. The regular LE checks in at 29/38, and the S at 29/37. Even the last is within spitting distance of the best in the segment, including the 30/39 Sentra. In my efficiency-minded suburban driving the trip computer reported an average of 37.7, a bit better than the 36I managed with the Sentra. Driving with less care for fuel economy netted 32, about even with the Nissan. The Toyota couldn't quite match the Nissanona 65-mph highway drive, though, with a two-way trip computer average of 38 vs. 40 (quite close to those EPA estimates). see full Toyota Corolla review

Fuel economy is great, as expected with 1.8 I4. EPA rated city driving at 28MPG but i have never been below 32. When cruising at 65 with A/C off, 40MPG is possible. The sole reason i bought the car was for economy. Paired with great MPG and great price, I would say this beats out a Prius if you want to save money. see full Toyota Corolla review

2007 4dr Sedan 126-horsepower 1.8L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
This car gets 25 City, 35 Highway. It looks like it should be able to do better, but it does not. The 3-speed Automatic with Overdrive (4-speed in reality) is dated and is only okay with the engine's performance. The engine itself, the 1ZZFE, has very few flaws, but is the final evolution of a 90's engine design, that gets okay horsepower, but goes through gas more than it should. And when they get older, they do go through more gas than they should. In addition, the engine can't handle E10 in cold weather (regular gasoline with "up to" 10 percent ethanol) without problems, requiring you to spend more on "REC" fuel, which is non-ethanol pure gasoline. On top of that, the drive by wire throttle has a noticeable delay between the hair trigger throttle and the engine surging forward, making smooth starts with the automatic difficult. see full Toyota Corolla review
2005 4dr Sedan 170-horsepower 1.8L I4
6-speed manual FWD
The gearing which keeps the engine in its power band keeps it at 4k RPM on the highway (I go fast). 30MPG on premium fuel is not justified by the modest increase in power. see full Toyota Corolla review
