Cars with the Best Gas Mileage

Posted on by Defensive Driving | in Defensive Driving Tips

The vehicle you drive says a lot about you. It says what is important to you and what kind of lifestyle you live. Not only that, but it can also make a big impact on how much money you spend every month on gas. Of course, if you have a family that you need to drive around, you will not be able to get away with a two-seater. However, if all you are using the vehicle for is to commute to work, a two-seater may be the perfect option. Here are the cars in each EPA class that get the best gas mileage, according to FuelEconomy.gov. Since everyone knows electric vehicles are clearly the most efficient, as most of them use little or no gas, this list is only comprised of non-electric vehicles (hybrids are still included).

Remember, these numbers are not set in stone. You can either make a positive or negative impact on your own gas mileage depending on how you drive and take care of your car. For the best gas mileage, always drive defensively. To learn more about proper defensive driving, visit DefensiveDriving.com. However, by choosing one of the above vehicles you are sure to get some of the best fuel economy in your car’s class.
