Compare the two vehicles side by side!
Compare Side-by-Side

Saturn SL1 (you didn't say if it was an SL1 or SL2) with a 5 speed is EPA rated ("new" EPA figures as of a few years ago) at 24mpg city 36mpg highway, Civic VX is EPA rated at 37mpg city and 45mpg highway, the EPA's figure for cost to drive 25 miles is $3.42 in the Saturn and $2.39 in the Civic VX, average person drives around 25 miles per day so the Saturn is going to cost you over a $1 per day more to drive! that web site figures the average person drives more then that per day and says the Saturn is going to cost you an extra $600 per year in fuel.

Those are EPA numbers, so yes, the average person on here is going to be doing better then them in both cars but they use the same test to get those numbers on both cars so it's a level field.
