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.

Reasons for becoming a member range from the economical to the ecological. More info about where EcoModding came from.
