I have gotten as low as 28 mpg and as high as 36 mpg. I like the fact that it is doing this well without being a hybrid. see full Pontiac Vibe review

Pulling a small trailer for my business @ 35 m.p.g. makes a difference. The car is very economical to drive. see full Pontiac Vibe review

Mediocre fuel economy. Average 8.5L/100KM (27MPG) with range over 5 years from 6.5L (36MPG) to 9.5L (24MPG). Not bad compared to SUV but not as good as hoped. see full Pontiac Vibe review
