From a 17mpg average Chevy truck to NEVER getting less than 29mpg city, need I say more? Well okay, how about 37mpg on a freeway run. I have only got 13000 miles on the vehicle, and can imagine the fuel economy will improve still more. see full Kia Rio review

2014 0 Trip computer indicated 36 MPG in mixed urban and highway driving. Appears to be accurate based on how much gas I put in it at the end of the rental period. The urban driving also had idling time so was not fuel economy friendly. see full Nissan Versa review

I did a lot of start and stop driving this summer at a camp, constantly reving up the engine to slowly drive over terrible speed bumps in the road.  When I left Georgia, my average MPG was 31.3.  When I arrived back in CA, after going 63 MPH (give or take 2) the whole way, my average MPG was up to 32.7. see full Nissan Versa review
