Approximately 30 mpg highway and good mileage around town, too. Even with the premium fuel requirement the ES is still not very expensive to keep fueled. see full Lexus ES review

For such a large & powerful car, fuel economy is quite good. Driving a ~100 mile/day round trip commute in bumper-to-bumper traffic, I get 24-28 mpg. see full Lexus ES review

With the high price of gasoline, any six-cylinder vehicle can be considered more than necessary for a daily commute. Still, averages of 22.5 MPG are not too bad. see full Lexus ES review
