Under good highway driving conditions the Cobalt can go 700km on a single tank, but even in harsh conditions fuel economy is reasonable. see full Chevrolet Cobalt review

I like that the 2.4L engine is able to put out significantly more power than the 2.2L and keep the same economy. The SS 2.4L is pretty quick and fun to drive and I still get 28 mpg on average just gunning around town with a lead foot and about 20% high see full Chevrolet Cobalt review

While not as impressive as some of its competitors, the Cobalt is still good for low to mid 30s if driven properly. see full Chevrolet Cobalt review

31 MPG on the highway which is better then the EPA suggests you can get with the SS sedan. While I do hit a lot of traffic going to and from work I still can get about 27MPG. see full Chevrolet Cobalt review
