What Our Members Are Saying about the Real Gas Mileage of the 2012 Subaru Legacy

2012 Subaru Legacy Real Gas Mileage: Pros
2013 4dr Sedan 256-horsepower 3.6L H6
5-speed shiftable automatic AWD
The downside of the H6 is not great gas mileage, but for what you are getting, it is not bad. On the highway with cruise control have managed to get about 30 mpg. In a mix of city and highway it gets 23 mpg. In city only it gets 18 mpg. Again, for AWD not bad, but not great. Want better gas mileage, get the H4 engine. see full Subaru Legacy review
