Fair mpg, but not the only reason to drive a mini.Averages about 23 mpg around town and 30+ on the highway.Does use high test gas.
2003 2dr Hatch supercharged 163hp 1.6L I4
6-speed manual FWD
With regular fuel and highway driving I was often getting 32 miles per gallon. With the new ethanol blends and more city driving the fuel economy has dropped to 27mph or so.
2003 2dr Hatch 115-horsepower 1.6L I4

At 36mpg hwy for a high end car, that ranks with the best in all categories
