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.

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.
