What Our Members Are Saying about the Real Gas Mileage of the 2001 Subaru Outback

2001 Subaru Outback Real Gas Mileage: Cons
2000 4dr Wagon 165-horsepower 2.5L H4
4-speed automatic AWD
Fuel economy is as expected, not great. It's a heavy car with an old engine and AWD. Short trips in the city, and it's fairly horrible. On the highway, it's particularly sensitive to speed, as the car is not very aerodynamic. I got as bad as 16 l/100 Km in the city, and as low as 8.8 l/100 Km on long trips. I believe the advertised 8.5 highway is possible if the trip is highway only. see full Subaru Outback review
