With the 09 Cooper (not the S model), it was easy to get over 40mpg on 55mph roads. On 70mph highways, it was more like 35mpg. Was wonderful to fill up and see over 500 miles of range. see full Mini Hardtop review

I get an average of 29+MPG around town with the air conditioning turned on. I have got 34mpg on a 200 mile trip on country roads and I just did 404.9 miles at 85/90mph A/C on with a 300 pound passenger on I-95 and got 32.4mpg. This is all normal driving. see full Mini Hardtop review

What is not to like about 40 mpg. Granted, I do mostly highway miles, but even with my city driving mixed in, I am still getting close to 40 overall (39.5 to be exact). see full Mini Hardtop review
