2005 Hyundai Santa Fe Real Gas Mileage: Pros

5-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Getting ~ 20MPG using BP regular unleaded from Kroger. Quick Trip in Loganville, GA for some as yet undetermined reason is consistently 1 to 2 MPG less??? Still, this is a far superior fuel economy realized from a full time 4WD SUV over my 96 Durango V-8 see full Hyundai Santa Fe review

For a car of this size and weight, fuel economy is decent. see full Hyundai Santa Fe review

Horrible fuel economy. If we were in the current gas price age, we would not have bought it. Average around 16 mpg. see full Hyundai Santa Fe review
