Real world mpg for various vehicle types...

Info from the 2004 edition of Consumer Reports Buying Guide...2003 and earlier models

......mpg is actual tested mixed city/highway.....*est avg* not actually calculated...categories are theirs...some left out

small sedan = 25 mpg

fuel efficient = 39 mpg

family sedan = 22 mpg

minivans = 18 mpg

wagons/hatchbacks = 21 mpg

small SUV = 19 mpg

SUV = 16 mpg

compact PU V6 4x4 = 15 mpg

large PU V8 4x4 = 14 mpg

Probably the kind of mileage people are actually getting day to day...pretty poor IMO.

sounds right to me. my "family sedan" was getting 20-22 before mods. now with mods, including "the nut behind the wheel," yielding much improvement over EPA.

Hmm...whats the difference between fuel effecient and small sedan? I have a 4 door civic, am seeing fuel-effecient numbers with P&G...but still wouldn't call it specifically fuel effecient.

Fuel efficient is the hybrids and so forth...range from 32 to 51 mpg....VWs...Hondas...Toyotas.

These figures are for normal drivers...or from the perspective of many on this forum...subnormal drivers?

I currently manage 23 mixed with a compact 4x4 truck and 32-33 mixed with a compact 4x4 station wagon. I'm a subnormal driver.

I was getting 25 mpg average per tank in my Accord. So it apears to be a "average" small sedan. Technically mines a coupe, but you know...

My car is rated at 40mpg combo and I was able to get nearly 80mpg with a practically unmodded vehicle. Its ALL about foot control and brains...
