Saab 9-3 Real Gas Mileage: Pros

2008 4dr Wagon turbocharged 210hp 2.0L I4
6-speed manual FWD
Lots of variations on fuel economy as you can read. Driving style will make a big difference, using a lot of engine power uses gas, no way around that. Try to cruise between 1800-2300rpm, it gives good results. Cars have improved a lot in the last years, no way a 7 year old design can match a 2015 model. But It comes close! see full Saab 9-3 review

Better than 30 mpg on long trips, even with 75+mph average speeds as reported by the onboard computer. Fantastic given the performance available. see full Saab 9-3 review

Very good considering the power. I average 32mpg doing mostly highway. I cruise at 75mph and like to rev the engine in the city. see full Saab 9-3 review
2008 4dr Sedan turbocharged 210hp 2.0L I4
6-speed manual FWD
I have been a tad disappointed in my newest car's fuel economy. My tuned to 340 hp 1995 Saab 900 SE was getting 29 mpg in mixed city/highway driving. Currently I am driving 75% city and suburban surface streets and the rest highway. This must explain my rather pedestrian 23 mpg current average. I did get 33 mpg on a fast long road haul to the east coast. see full Saab 9-3 review

25 to 30 mpg on regular gas, depending on how many highway miles per tank. This is my first car that takes regular in more than ten years, at least $0.20 a gallon cheaper than premium. see full Saab 9-3 review

It gets 29mpg highway if you keep it at 70mph. Just completed 700 mile weekend trip with extended 85-90mph speeds, averaging 26.5mpg. Avg 22/23 in the city. Can run regular with only slight performance degrade. What other 260hp car gets this mileage? see full Saab 9-5 review
