Where can I find gas mileage info for used 2004, 2005, & 2006 vehicles?


#1

I’m in the market to purchase a used car and gas mileage is a factor for me. However, the cars I’m looking at usually don’t have the origial window sticker with the mpg info.



Are there any websites or other sources I can use to find gas mileage for used cars?

Check out Consumer Reports, Apr 05-07 editions. If they have tested the car, they display their average mpg. That figure is more realistic than any mpg computed by a manufacturer.

The EPA site is here:

When you are looking at the “official” fuel mileage figures keep this in mind: Your mileage may vary.

Few people achieve the mileage listed on the window sticker.

www.edmunds.com is a good research site.

Oops, hit the submit button too soon. This site has reviews back to 1994. The mpg numbers should be in the reviews.

<www.fueleconomy.gov> The nice thing about this site, is you can compare cars side-by-side, and, given your driving habits and the price of fuel where you live, estimate how much each car will cost you per year.

You can do the same right on this site. Go to ‘Research vehicles’.

Try www.gasaroo.com. Its a database that is populated by actual car owners who report what they no joke got under normal conditions along with the lab/test results.
