Mitsubishi Mirage Gas Mileage: How far will you go?

Are you getting your money's worth in gas? The Mitsubishi Mirage's gas mileage saves you hundreds with its amazing MPG! That's not including its extremely affordable price. Let's take a quick look at what you can expect with the Mirage.

Mitsubishi Mirage Gas Mileage

As you can see the Mirage is a compact car with easy cruising and a low starting price. Getting the most out of your ride comes down to the basic everyday costs. An average person drives about 13,000 miles a year. The budget for gas adds up quickly! Luckily, the Mitsubishi Mirage gas mileage gets an impressive 36 MPG in the city and 43 MPG on the highway (averaging 39.5 MPG)! How much money would you save? Does it really make a difference? Let's take a look.

How MPG is Calculated.

First, we need to look at how gas mileage is calculated. You can get a pretty accurate current MPG by following these easy steps:

  1. Fill up your tank.
  2. Reset your trip odometer to start the new miles recording at zero.
  3. Drive your car normally until at least 2/3rds of your tank is empty (the less gas left the more accurate your MPG will be).
  4. Refill your tank and RECORD the amount of gas it took to fill again.
  5. Finally, record the reading on the odometer.

Divide the miles driven by the number of gallons to refill. (Miles/Gallons) This will equal your miles per gallon!

For example, you filled up your tank and reset the odometer. Then, drove 346 miles. You refill your tank and it fills with 18.4 gallons. 

      346/18.4=18.8       Your MPG would be 18.8MPG!

The gas price at Wawa today (March 26th, 2019) in Glassboro, NJ is $2.65 a gallon.

That 18.4 gallons cost $48.76. Your current ride, as used in the example above, only gets you 346 miles for that price. Let's compare it to the Mitsubishi Mirage gas mileage, that gets an average of 39.5 MPG.

18.4 gallons  x  39.5 MPG = 634.8 miles

You get almost double the distance for the same $48.76 or half the price to travel the same 346 miles.

Going back to the average miles driven in a year 13,000 miles, how much is saved with the Mirage? Let's do the math:

     Example Car:   13,000 miles driven a year  ÷  18.8 MPG  =  691.5 gallons a year

                              691.5 gallons  x  $2.65 a gallon  =  $1,832.48 spent on gas

     Mirage:   13,000 miles driven a year  ÷  39.5 MPG  =  329.1 gallons a year

                              329.1 gallons  x  $2.65 a gallon  =  $872.12 spent on gas

Your car will slightly differ due to the average gas mileage range. But you can see the huge savings from the amazing gas mileage of the Mitsubishi Mirage. You save $960.36 per year.
