  • Fuel gauge

    2019 Chevy Camaro SS, V-6 return worse fuel economy than 2018 models

    Despite improved aerodynamics and a 10-speed automatic transmission, the 2019 Chevrolet Camaro SS returns worse fuel economy than before. Ditto for V-6 powered Camaros. The EPA posted official fuel economy estimates for Chevy's latest pony car, and they show minor drops in fuel economy, but...

  • 2016 Mazda MX-5 Club

    The 2016 Mazda MX-5 has a heavy burden on its shoulders, living up to the reputation earned by the previous three generations of Mazda sports roadsters. But fortunately, its lightweight construction looks to be standing it in good stead—especially in the gas mileage department. Light makes for fun, but it can also enhance gas mileage, of course, and in the 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata, the latter, at least, comes down to hard data: 27 mpg city, 34 mpg highway, and 30 mpg combined when fitted with the standard six-speed manual transmission.

Some of the special diesel models sold in Europe will though, and a model that's certainly...

  • 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Live Shots

    The new horsepower war is fully upon us. It's no longer just about how much fuel and oxygen you can flow through an engine in a quest for a bigger bottom line, it's about getting the most horsepower from the least amount of fuel possible. The 2014 Chevy Corvette Stingray does a remarkably good job of it, scoring 29 mpg highway and 17 mpg city for a combined rating of 21 mpg. That's pretty much on top of the Stingray's sporting rival, the Porsche 911, which scores 19 mpg city and 27 mpg highway for 22 mpg combined in 2013 911 Carrera S form. Eking out 2 mpg combined beyond the 911's highway...
