Average MPG by Most Popular US Cars

Fuel economy is one of the key factors to consider when buying a vehicle, in addition to the comfort, price, safety, and modern design of your new four-wheel companion. So, when you’ve made up your mind about how much money you are ready to spend on your purchase, it’s also worth looking into mileage per gallon (MPG), since this figure will directly impact your vehicle’s running cost.  

The miles per gallon calculator is a smart online tool that will enable you to estimate fuel consumption when planning your next trip or breaking down monthly costs. Likewise, knowing the gas mileage is essential to calculate the petrol volume you need to drive a specific distance. Otherwise, there is a great risk of getting stuck somewhere in the middle of the road with an empty tank. 

The table below outlines the average MPG rates for the most popular cars in the US in 2022.

What Affects the Car’s MPG

An MPG calculator relies on distance, fuel volume, and fuel cost, and works as a real mileage estimator for specific situations. Obviously enough, the higher the MPG, the higher the fuel efficiency rate.

In the meantime, the average MPG rate varies by car make, model, year, and age, and depends on driving speed. Thus, driving on a highway at a consistent speed will reduce fuel usage, and stop-and-go city traffic will produce the opposite result. However, there are a number of other factors and aspects that impact fuel efficiency:

  • Driving style: Aggressive and speedy driving, as well as intermittent braking and acceleration, will noticeably increase fuel consumption (up to 30%) and reduce your gas mileage accordingly;
  • Driving distance: Short distance drives will eat up more gas since it takes energy and time for your vehicle’s engine to warm up. For a comparison, lengthy trips are more cost-effective; 
  • Car maintenance: Regular and diligent car maintenance is the key to avoiding and preventing many problems with your vehicle. The same is true for optimizing fuel consumption. By changing oils, filters, and brake pads and cleaning filters, injectors, and sensors in time, you’ll naturally maximize the MPG rate;
  • Tires condition: Low tire pressure and worn tires work to increase road friction and make the engine consume more fuel to accelerate and maintain speed. Keep an eye on your tires’ condition to maintain fuel efficiency; 
  • Oil quality: By reducing the engine friction and taking care of engine parts, proper oil matters for your gas mileage as well. Synthetic oils changed on a regular basis will help level up the MPG; 
  • Climate and weather conditions: In cold weather, you need to heat your vehicle before heading on a trip. This will take more fuel accordingly. Hence, those who live in regions with a harsh cold climate report reduced gas mileage for their vehicles; 
  • Engine damage: Worn out or damaged engine parts and elements might drastically reduce the engine performance and cause a significant fuel consumption increase. Maintain your engine in a good serviceable condition to keep your gas mileage high;
  • Added loads: A vehicle loaded with passengers and cargo or towing a trailer or caravan will consume more fuel than the same vehicle driven empty. 

How to Calculate Miles per Gallon

Miles per gallon, or MPG, rate is the indicator of your vehicle’s gas efficiency. Though the actual gas mileage is influenced by many factors, you can calculate an average figure on your own or by using an MPG cost calculator.   

Before doing any calculations, you need to have the following info at hand:

  • Driven mileage;
  • Consumed fuel in gallons.

You can either take an estimated distance and average gas consumption rate, or make actual measurements by recording how much fuel your vehicle consumes when driving a certain distance.

The general calculation formula is as follows:

Miles Traveled / Gallons Used = Miles per Gallon

Meanwhile, an average MPG calculator will save you the trouble of doing the math and help you plan your trips and calculate car-related expenses in a more efficient manner. Besides, you’ll be able to calculate not only in miles and gallons but also in liters and kilometers. 

Consider Selling Your Totaled Car to JunkCarsUS

If you notice that your vehicle eats up too much fuel and no tweaks help, it might be the right time to switch to a new model or even consider buying an electric car. And JunkCarsUS will readily buy your old vehicle, whatever its state. 

Whether you seek to sell your fire-damaged car or even a heavily damaged vehicle after a serious car crash or collision, feel free to contact us. And you can use our total loss value car calculator to get an initial price estimate. 


How do I figure miles per gallon?

There are two options in front of you. You can use the average miles per gallon calculator or you can calculate the gas mileage on your own by:

  1. Recording the mileage driven;
  2. Figuring out the fuel gallons used to cover the above distance;
  3. Diving the mileage by gallons to get an MPG rate for that trip.

How do I know my fuel tank volume?

Depending on your car size, it has a 12 to 16-gallon tank. To know for sure, you can refer to the owner manual for your vehicle or simply google your car make and model.

How to increase my car’s MPG rate?

Car manufacturers normally specify the average MPG rates for highways and city drives. Yet, those figures can change under the impact of multiple other factors. To improve your gas mileage and maintain it at an optimal level, watch your driving style and ensure your vehicle is in a serviceable condition and is duly maintained.

My 19 years old Chevy had been in three different accidents. When I started making calls to see if I could sell it, most people would not give me the time of day. As a last resort, I called and was amazed that not only were they willing to take my car, they gave me a great price for it. The pickup process itself could not have been easier!

My car was stolen and when it was found and returned to me it was a total disaster. Rather than spending a century and a half of trying to get it back in shape I called to see if they would take it off my hands. They asked me a little about the car and then made me an offer. The price and the service could not be better!

My car had all sorts of electrical and mechanical problems that seemed to keep it in the shop more than I drove it. I tried to sell it but everyone was freaked out when they heard about all the problems I had with the car. Tried this company and not only did they not care about any of that, but they also gave me a reasonable price for the car and hauled it away the same day I gave them a call!

Just about as straight forward as you can get. You tell them about your car, they make you an offer. Then they just come out and get the car. Oh, and it does not matter if you do not have the title for the car.

As a woman, I’ve always been a little apprehensive when it comes to car issues. My old car was constantly having problems and I just felt like I was throwing good money after bad fixing it all the time. Called this company and it was great. No pressure and good info. Would definitely recommend them!

Junkcarsus team noted that I left mechanics kit and speakers in my old van and handed all the stuff to me before taking my car. That’s what I call attention to the details. Thank you, guys!
