What Our Members Are Saying about the Real Gas Mileage of the Acura TL

Acura TL Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2012 4dr Sedan 305-horsepower 3.7L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Mileage has been pretty good to great. At 65 mph with cruise control on a smooth, level highway I've gotten 33 mpg. 80mph (legally in west Texas) on cruise control I've gotten 24 to 25 mpg depending on wind. Between those, 70 to 75 mph on a highway, I get about the EPA highway rating of 26 mpg. In mixed highway and traffic I routinely get 23 mpg (this is my usual commute). Straight stop-and-go errand-running I get 17 to 18 mpg, which is pretty close to the EPA city rating. I tend to be somewhat light on the throttle most of the time. see full Acura TL review

2010 4dr Sedan 305-horsepower 3.7L V6
5-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Coming from a 3.2 engine that regularly got 22-23 mpg it it a bit disappointing that the 2010 TL with the 3.7 gets only 18-19 mpg. I would expect with the engine technologies improvement over the years that the bigger engine could get better fuel mileage. see full Acura TL review

Terrible fuel economy - this could be an issue with just my car. I'm getting about a 12-14 average. see full Acura TL review
