I put in some numbers into the cost of these mini vehicles from new to 30k, and new to 100k. Of course, this does not include oil changes, and other services. These costs are SOLELY using the MSRP before any fees or extra costs, and using fuel price of 3.50 per gallon, other than the Cooper which needs premium, and I priced at 3.75.

I used information found here: 2-15 Micra vs competitors, power to weight ratio comparison

And replaced information if I found differences on the website. MINI data was also collected from

Reviewing this, bar any errors on my part, the Micro is the best bet at 100k miles. I will be reposting this same post on

Best Tanks:
Mustang - 54.83 mpg (US) at the Green Grand Prix
Insight - 82.91966 mpg (US) over 818.5 miles.
