The vehicle gets close to 30 mpg on the highway, even with a Yakima aftermarket bike/boat rack on top. For a true 6 passenger vehicle, thats phenomenal.

I average 27 mpg city driving in a mini(micro)van. No one esle comes close.

Better than any other 6 seat vehicle or minivan (at least on paper), and the only one available with a manual transmission.
2006 4dr Minivan 157-horsepower 2.3L I4

For its size, decent fuel economy thanks to the 4-cylinder engine, especially when combined with the manual transmission.

It uses twice as much fuel as a Prius.

My 4 speed automatic yields about 10.5 L/100 km on 50/50 highway and city driving with a conscious effort to stick to the speed limit and driving as if I had an egg under my right foot. Eh, I thought it would AT LEAST be under 10.

vehicle is heavy for its size so the fuel economy is not that great.
