gas milage between 2.0 and 3.8

as of now I have a deposit for a track 2.0 and wanted to know is there a big difference between the v6 and 4s gas milage...i have to drive 35 highway miles to work and 35 miles back 5 days a week so it plays a big factor on choosing wich engine

there are a few threads floating around in the different engine forums about mileage. sadly for us 2.0 folk the 3.8s seem to be getting the same and in some cases (i actually think most cases) better mileage on the highway.

I get 23-24 mpg mixed in my 2.0. I use cruise control when I can. I do mostly suburban driving. Cruise around 50 and stop every couple miles or so and repeat toss in a few miles of highway driving and about 30 mins of bumper to bumper stop and go traffic every morning (when i'm in stop and go the average BOMBS. it goes from 24 down to 20 in about 5 minutes tops. it climbs back up when i drive it home in the evening and the traffic isn't so bad) and that's how i get the 23-24. My 94 camry got the same mileage...and it had 215k miles on it. Maybe a new air filter (cp-e's looks SOOO nice!) and a PA tune will really improve it....just wish i had the money.

I get around 18-19 mpg (60% hwy, 40% city) with my 3.8 V6 but I just hope that I'd get better mpg as it adds more miles.... (only have 1015 miles on it)

Mine was like that in the beginning, it slowly gets better. I run 87 octane 90% of the time. I'm amazed that my car gets better gas mileage then my Mom's 2008 Honda CR-V 4cyl.

ok, sorry to play devil's advocate, but who gets a sports car and worries about MPG?? if you're worried about 70mi a day get a Civic or a Prius.

The GC is a sporty 2door that the majority of owners probably use as their daily driver. I'm sure a lot of people worry about MPG these days. Let's face it, the fact that we're driving around in a 20-30k car probably means we're not multimillionaires.

That's true, the estimated epa combined mileage for the 2.0 is 23 for the auto...which is what I'm getting. However, they estimated the combined for the 3.8 to be 21, and 3.8 drivers are reporting 25+ combined so it's a little disappointing to us 2.0ers that we're not getting better than expected numbers.

I checked that seriously one time.

On 400Km, at 105Km/h (average), the indicator in car told me an average of 8,1l/100Km (29MPG)

The car has 4000Km.

I own a 2.0T GT.

At least in my 2.0 it depends on how heavy my foot is. My foot is generally quite heavy. I get crappy mileage. I can get good mileage - it's just not fun. What kind of driver will you be?

I average 18 in the city and 25 on the highway, without a heavy foot.

What is required for a new FS thread?
  • Detailed title of item
  • Detailed description of item (specify if its new, used, etc.)
  • Contact information (Phone number OR email preferred - not just Private Messaging)
  • Asking price
  • Location (State if local pickup or if you will ship)
  • Actual Photos of the item
Any of these missing means your thread will not be approved.

It's a Hyundai not a Lambo... most of us are in the position where we like the car because it has 200/300 hp, is fun to drive and still gets pretty awesome mileage (for what it is).

Honestly, when creeping through traffic on my way home or out to the lake, I'm glad I can still get 20-22mpg in rushhour... one less thing to worry about when I'm out enjoying myself.

I have been getting about 24-25ish with 50/50 driving with my 2.0T A/T . But most of the time I've had the windows down or A/C on so it could go up a bit.

mileage was on my mind shopping for this car -- not top priority -- but I didn't want a guzzler either.

I'm getting around 26 or so on 87 grade gas... My miles started out crapy for the first couple of tanks but with 3000 miles on it now, it is better. Mine is mostly highway.

I have gotten 29-30 mpg with premium on a long highay drive.

MPG varies for everyone.

depends on how you accelerate and how to handles on the highway, how often do you press the brake vs avoiding to brake.

canadian estimation of the 2L is 6.6L/100Km, works out to be 34mpg, but I don't think anyone on this site reported such value, you would most likely need to cruise at 50miles/hour on the 6th gear. V6 will burn more fuel since you have 100kg extra to accelerate everytime you do so, bigger engine = more friction etc...

tooooo many factor that I won't bore you with, but you will get people reporting contradictory values for this thread since no one drive with the same manner.

You have to compare with a same standard, and I don't think the same person has both 3.8 and 2L at the same time to give you that feed back.

just went from Montreal (western suburbs) Quebec to Stoney Creek Ontario on one tank.

V6 is definitely better onn the highway. You can stay in 6th all day long.

The Canadian factory ratings are also in Imperial gallons. When comparing with Americans, you have to use US gallons since most of the south-of-the-border people refuse to believe there are any other gallons


The fact of the matter is that the 3.8 gets better real world mileage.
The numbers on the window don't matter nearly as much as the average MPG rating that most of the owners are getting.
