What is EPA Gas Mileage?

How is Gas Efficiency Calculated?

Wondering how gas efficiency is calculated?

While the speed, power, and luxury of a new car are very important to nearly all buyers, the car’s miles per gallon are vital for its lifetime. While the miles per gallon are provided by the EPA, there are a few parts to figure out the official gas mileage. Starting with the car’s weight and the capability of the motor. Just because a car is on the heavier side, the engine tech could still lower how much fuel is being used. EPA ratings usually are better for smaller cars, trucks, and SUVs because of their aerodynamics and total weight. These small vehicles do not need as much fuel to keep them on the road. Another factor to consider is the overall maintenance of the car, truck, or SUV, making sure the tires have the correct air pressure to lighten the workload. All in all, fuel economy is important for any vehicle and it takes a lot of effort to create an efficient car.

What is Fuel Mileage?

The fuel economy is the most consistent way to determine how far a vehicle could travel with a tank of fuel. ​Vehicle size, drivetrain (RWD or AWD), and engine power all play an enormous role in calculating the miles per gallon of the vehicle. The numbers like smaller cars with hybrid capabilities and a low vehicle weight that just barely tips the scales. While gas mileage can dip over time, scheduled maintenance and regular drives are the best ways to prevent a drop in your miles per gallon.


Highway vs City Fuel Mileage

Fuel Mileage in Highway vs City

Looking at miles per gallon, there are two numbers that wrap up the gas mileage, city and highway MPGs. Rear world driving conditions are different compared to the environment in testing facilities and the overall numbers reflect that. Measuring the 2 separate gas mileage ratings shows how your driving habits will alter a vehicle’s miles per gallon. How you drive will absolutely affect the gas mileage, ​so providing both ratings gives a true expectation for your car’s gas mileage. When you consider all the stop and go of city driving compared to the constant movement of highway driving, clearly, highway driving gets higher MPGs.

 Miles Per Gallon & Driving Modes

Do Drive Modes Affect Fuel Mileage

Many cars that have been produced in the past several years have included customizable drive modes to fit your driving style and preserve gas. A sporty mode will prioritize a performance-based drive while “Eco” mode prioritizes gas mileage. Between driving modes and cylinder deactivation, new cars are more fuel-efficient than ever before.
