Fuel Economy
Fuel economy is rated at 33 mpg city / 39 mpg hwy / 36 mpg combined with the dual-clutch transmission — slightly lower city mpg with the manual. In our short time with the fortwo, we saw a less impressive 23 mpg in hard city driving with 35 mpg during highway driving. In our opinion, a car this small should be returning unmatched fuel economy; although the numbers are good, they are not much better than cars with more space and better performance. The fortwo has a tiny 7.6 gallon fuel tank which should provide an average range of approximately 275 miles.
