Upper 20's on highway and mid-20's in suburbia from a vehicle that weighs 5K lbs. see full Mercedes-Benz M-Class review

Other luxury cars/SUVs require premium gas. Diesel could be same or even cheaper than regular gas and with immense torque and a somewhat light foot I get almost 25Mpg see full Mercedes-Benz M-Class review

5000 lbs vehicle. Gets 32 mpg on highway up to 75 mph, faster than that mpg drops. 23 to 24 mpg around town see full Mercedes-Benz M-Class review

Have a V8, so I should have expected, but mpg is averaging about 16 around town. With the current gas prices, I dread going to the pump. $90 to fill up the huge tank. see full Mercedes-Benz M-Class review

I have calculated my gas using the onboard computer a few different times in mixed driving and am getting a consistent 25/26 mpg. That's without hard acceleration or driving above 70 MPH on the highway. see full Audi Q5 review

We initially went in looking for a commuter vehicle with High mpg... but the sport they had jumped out at us and we were on the hunt for one... in the wife's daily 45 mile drive to work she's averaging 20 mpg which is comparable to the Audi's 4 cylinder and my truck's 8 cylinder. see full Audi Q5 review

I worry about escalating gas prices here in CA, but I got about 23 mpg in Europe and hope for that here. Not great, but close to the turbo and if people push the turbo to make up for the lesser power, as I would, the mileage is a wash. see full Audi Q5 review
