Highest MPG for a non-hybrid: Mitsubishi Mirage
Best non-hybrid MPG: 2014 Mitsubishi Mirage?
Mitsubishi says its new Mirage subcompact will get the best MPG of any non-hybrid: 44 mpg (US) highway, 37 city. (Some drivers are already beating that in various economy driving contests.) How? An efficient 1.2L, 3-cylinder engine, very light weight and aerodynamic design.

What is Ecomodding?
Welcome to EcoModder.com, an automotive community where performance is judged by fuel economy rather than power and speed. EcoModders employ a combination of vehicle mods, driving techniques, and common sense to squeeze every penny out of the pumps. Reasons for becoming a member range from the economical to the ecological. More info about where EcoModding came from.

The purpose of the test was to determine whether larger diameter tires, which result in lower engine RPM and higher load for a given speed, can improve gas mileage. The test car has a 6-speed manual transmission. At highway speeds (55-65 MPH), the larger tires gave a 5.7% average increase in MPG. The engine ran about 200 RPM lower.
