2011 Hyundai Santa Fe Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2012 4dr SUV turbocharged 194hp 2.2L I4 Diesel
6-speed manual AWD
Date is Sept 30 2013. It has a 2.2 litre diesel engine with manual gearbox. 6th gear is very useful on a long run as it acts as an overdrive. It has travelled 7509 miles at average of 38.42mpg imperial. It will easily exceed 41mpg on a long run. My Kia Sportage diesel travelled 15051 miles and averaged 37.85mpg imperial. Both vehicles were full of luggage for 29% of their mileage. Worst fuel consumption was 32.23mpg over 495 miles, all short runs so no complaints there. Best was 41.47mpg over 523 miles. Kia Sportage best was 48.59mpg and worst was 29.88mpg see full Hyundai Santa Fe review

Guzzles in stop and go traffic. ECO indicator is just that and not entirely believable at that. see full Hyundai Santa Fe review

Only getting between 22-23 mpg around town on 4 cyl. My previous 6 cyl got 23-24. But the 4 cyl is surprisingly peppy. see full Hyundai Santa Fe review
