The Mitsubishi Outlander Fuel Type

The 2023 Mitsubishi Outlander MPG ratings are great. Another benefit this SUV has over some competitors? It doesn't require premium gasoline. That's right: For all models (even the Outlander PHEV), the Mitsubishi Outlander gas type is regular 87-octane gasoline. You'll find that this applies to the above-mentioned past years as well.

2023 Mitsubishi Outlander Fuel Efficiency vs. the Competition

2023 Mitsubishi Outlander miles per gallon ratings are competitive, but competition can't happen in a bubble. Let's see how the crossover crowd compares to an Outlander.

First up, one of the Outlander SUV's only segment competitors to offer a third row of seats is the VW Tiguan. At its most efficient, the 2023 VW Tiguan offers an EPA-estimated 24/31 MPG (City/Highway).3 A good try, but just short of the most efficient Mitsubishi Outlander MPG ratings even with the standard gasoline model.

Second is the two-row 2023 Mazda CX-5 with its standard engine. While this vehicle tries its best, an EPA-estimated 24/30 MPG (City/Highway)4 still can't quite match what the highest Mitsubishi Outlander MPG ratings can offer.

The standard-engine 2023 Hyundai Tucson AWD delivers an EPA-estimated 23/28 MPG (City/Highway),5 which falls beneath the EPA-estimated 24/30 MPG (City/Highway)2 of a 2023 Mitsubishi Outlander S-AWC.

Wrapping up this party, the most efficient 2023 Chevy Blazer pulls in with its standard 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder engine and FWD; can it top the Mitsubishi Outlander MPG ratings? No, it delivers an EPA-estimated 22/29 MPG (City/Highway).6

Frequently Asked Questions

What kind of gas does the Mitsubishi Outlander require?

If you want to utilize those impressive fuel economy numbers, all you need to do is pull up to the closest gas pump, put your card in, and select "regular" because the Mitsubishi Outlander only needs standard gasoline. This can help save you a substantial amount. If you want to, you can put premium gasoline in it. However, it's unlikely to boost performance by any significant or noticeable degree.

Does the Outlander or Outlander Sport have better fuel economy?

Certain Mitsubishi Outlander Sport models do have higher MPG estimates than some Mitsubishi Outlander models. However, on the whole, the Mitsubishi Outlander is usually slightly more fuel-efficient than the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport. For 2023, the AWD version of the Outlander Sport gets an EPA-estimated 23/29 MPG (City/Highway).2 The regular Mitsubishi Outlander with Super All Wheel Control delivers an EPA-estimated 24/30 MPG (City/Highway).2

Why do AWD vehicles have a lower MPG rating?

AWD means all-wheel drive. As such, AWD vehicles send power to all four wheels, and this requires more energy consumption from all of your vehicle's components. This consumption means that gas is used up quicker than it would be on 2WD models because 2WD drivetrains are not as complex as those that send power to all your wheels. In addition, all-wheel-drive vehicles tend to be a little heavier.
