We Love Fuel-Efficient Cars! But How Do They Work?

We all love the idea of using less gas. It keeps money in our pockets. It keeps us engaged behind the wheel. And nowadays, it helps us travel around using less of the world's limited resources. There's a lot of talk about cars having high mpg ratings but have you ever wondered why that is? Isn't a car a car? Isn't an engine an engine? Yes and no! Not all vehicles are created equally. So let's take a look at what contributes to a higher mpg rating in a vehicle:

  • Weight. The heavier a car is, the more energy is required to get it moving and keep it moving. In this case, that's kinetic energy, which comes from the combustion of fossil fuels in the engine, which in turn, powers the transmission to get your wheels rolling. Think of it as a shopping cart. The lighter it is, the easier it will be to push it around.
  • Aerodynamics. Nowadays, most car manufacturers spend a great deal of time and money to ensure that their vehicles will cut through wind resistance. The more aerodynamic a car is, the more fuel-efficient it can be.
  • Combustion Technology. Every engine cycle (we know them as "RPMs") has an explosion at the end of it. This explosion is a mixture of compressed air and fuel, which is drawn into the combustion chamber, and then detonated. Over the years, engines have gotten incredibly sophisticated with respect to how they monitor, deliver, compress, and detonate the fuel/air mixture. When you see acronyms tagged to an engine configuration like DI, DOHC, and VVT, that's some of your more modern fuel-efficient technology at work.
  • Hybrid Technology. Tandem to an internal combustion engine (ICE), an electric motor will operate on the drivetrain, which relieves the ICE of its duties for a certain period of time. The end result is increased mpg because less fuel is required to drive around thanks to the part-time help of the electric motor.

There are more factors that contribute to a higher mpg than just these, but understanding this list should be a great starting point for the key factors that make or break fuel economy.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a good gas mileage for a used car?

"Good gas mileage" varies with factors like the car's segment (i.e., full-size sedan), its drivetrain layout (i.e., front-wheel drive), powertrain type (i.e., gas-powered), and other factors.

Generally speaking, any gas-powered used car with an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 25 MPG city / 30 MPG highway or higher can be considered a used car with good gas mileage. Used SUVs that deliver more than an EPA-estimated 20 MPG city / 25 MPG highway can be regarded as used SUVs with good gas mileage.

Do used cars use more gas?

Used cars made only a few model years ago will typically deliver similar gas mileage to their factory-fresh counterparts. However, as a car ages, its components can lose their mechanical efficiency. This loss of mechanical efficiency can result in a loss of fuel efficiency. When looking for used cars with good gas mileage, look for recent model-year vehicles that are inspected with a sharp eye for detail; you'll find precisely that at Gunther Mitsubishi.

How many miles is too many for a used car?

The mileage lifespan of a vehicle varies from brand to brand and model to model. However, many modern cars can last for 200,000 miles when properly cared for. You'll find a dependable selection of low mileage used cars when you shop at Gunther Mitsubishi to make your decision easier.
