It...sucks. For a 190hp v6 I expected 23 or more. I get as low as 17 in the winter, and I max out at 25 at any time in the year all highway. With new plugs I am getting 21-22 around the suburbs, compared to 18/19 earlier. see full Saturn L-Series review

It is way too much fun to drive this car fast, and it will use a lot of fuel if you have a lead foot. Save the high revs for special occasions, and highway mileage can be close to 30 mpg. see full Saturn L-Series review
