The MPG is not terrible(22-24 combined mpg). But for a small car, most people would expect 30+mpg(28 at the least). see full Volvo C30 review

Ill admit that when I drove the C30 I was driving fast. I rented it for a weekend to see if I wanted to buy it or not. And I went thru an entire tank in less than 200 miles. see full Volvo C30 review
