2001 Volvo V70 Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2001 4dr Wagon turbocharged 247hp 2.3L I5
5-speed manual FWD
Fair fuel economy but the cost of premium fuel (20% more than regular in Canada) makes it seem worse. Typical average town/highway is about 9 l/100km. About 10 l/100km in winter. Best case about 7.5 l/100km sustained, flat highway.
2001 4dr Wagon turbocharged 247hp 2.3L I5

Avg 9.0 l/100km mixed town and highway, 10 l/100km in winter, best case 7.8 l/100km sustained, flat highway - but takes premium fuel @ 20% more than regular.
