TrueDelta Reviews the Real Gas Mileage of the Mitsubishi Lancer

Mitsubishi Lancer Real Gas Mileage: Cons
YearComment
Mitsubishi did improve the powertrain's EPA ratings a few years ago. But they're still only 22 mpg city, 31 highway. Even the portly Dart GT manages 23/33 with a manual transmission. Credit a sixth ratio the Lancer lacks. In my suburban driving, the trip computer regularly reported averages in the high 20s. Other compacts have done better in the same driving, but not by as wide a margin as the EPA numbers would suggest. see full Mitsubishi Lancer review

TrueDelta Reviews the Real Gas Mileage of the Toyota Corolla

Toyota Corolla Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearComment
2014 Those seeking to maximize fuel economy should check out the Corolla LE Eco, with EPA ratings for 30 mpg city, 42 highway. The regular LE checks in at 29/38, and the S at 29/37. Even the last is within spitting distance of the best in the segment, including the 30/39 Sentra. In my efficiency-minded suburban driving the trip computer reported an average of 37.7, a bit better than the 36I managed with the Sentra. Driving with less care for fuel economy netted 32, about even with the Nissan. The Toyota couldn't quite match the Nissanona 65-mph highway drive, though, with a two-way trip computer average of 38 vs. 40 (quite close to those EPA estimates). see full Toyota Corolla review

Fuel economy is great, as expected with 1.8 I4. EPA rated city driving at 28MPG but i have never been below 32. When cruising at 65 with A/C off, 40MPG is possible. The sole reason i bought the car was for economy. Paired with great MPG and great price, I would say this beats out a Prius if you want to save money. see full Toyota Corolla review

This car gets 25 City, 35 Highway. It looks like it should be able to do better, but it does not. The 3-speed Automatic with Overdrive (4-speed in reality) is dated and is only okay with the engine's performance. The engine itself, the 1ZZFE, has very few flaws, but is the final evolution of a 90's engine design, that gets okay horsepower, but goes through gas more than it should. And when they get older, they do go through more gas than they should. In addition, the engine can't handle E10 in cold weather (regular gasoline with "up to" 10 percent ethanol) without problems, requiring you to spend more on "REC" fuel, which is non-ethanol pure gasoline. On top of that, the drive by wire throttle has a noticeable delay between the hair trigger throttle and the engine surging forward, making smooth starts with the automatic difficult. see full Toyota Corolla review

The gearing which keeps the engine in its power band keeps it at 4k RPM on the highway (I go fast). 30MPG on premium fuel is not justified by the modest increase in power. see full Toyota Corolla review
