TrueDelta Reviews the Real Gas Mileage of the Mitsubishi Lancer

Mitsubishi Lancer Real Gas Mileage: Cons
YearComment
Mitsubishi did improve the powertrain's EPA ratings a few years ago. But they're still only 22 mpg city, 31 highway. Even the portly Dart GT manages 23/33 with a manual transmission. Credit a sixth ratio the Lancer lacks. In my suburban driving, the trip computer regularly reported averages in the high 20s. Other compacts have done better in the same driving, but not by as wide a margin as the EPA numbers would suggest. see full Mitsubishi Lancer review

It's not as great as you'd expect from an econobox. If this is your biggest concern, this is not the car for you. see full Mitsubishi Lancer review
