Hello All, I haven't seen a discussion specifically about 3rd Gen MPG's so far, and thought it would be fun to see what everyone is getting! I'm interested to see the difference between 2.0's vs 1.6's and Manuals vs Autos. I'll start off, I have a 2021 Forte 2.0 Manual, just broke over 1k miles recently, over this time I have averaged around 29.7 MPG (Been tracking it at the pump, the computer is more optimistic at around ~31 MPG). I will be driving more highway so I expect this to improve as time goes on. If I'm easy on it, I can probably reach close to 40 MPG. She is pretty fun to zip around, but then she becomes a gas guzzler after awhile. Let's see who is winning at the pump or having the most fun! 馃槈馃槀

I have a 2021 EX 2.0L with a Thule roof rack and bike rack installed. I'm at 5,000 miles now. With 80% highway driving, I get anywhere from 35-37 MPG. I'm getting close to the estimated MPG so I'm pretty satisfied in that regard. The roof rack probably subtracts a few MPG, especially when transporting a bike.

I have a 2021 2.0 manual. I鈥檝e got around 12.5k miles on it now, and I have averaged around 36.5 since I got it. Usually between 30-36 around town (depending on driving style and AC usage), and anywhere from 38 - 44 on the highway depending on whether or not I am trying to get good mileage or not. Usually around 39-40 at a (somewhat) steady 80 mph cruise. I find myself laughing my ass off after some hard backroad driving to find I was 鈥渙nly鈥 getting like 30 mpg.

I have an australian-delivered 2019 GT with 18,000mi on it and average 43-44mpg on the highway. The worst I've seen around town is about 26mpg.

I have a '21 GT2 (DCT)...maybe its cuz of my previous cars I just don't really pay TOO MUCH attention to MPG's lol
as long as I get about a week in a tank I'm good, usually 5-6 days My previous cars I'd get ~19-22 mpgs...doing my own calculations. On this car, it reads about 30-33 mpg, but its really on the 25-26 mpg based on my driving. I am completely okay with that. It is also a smaller fuel tank (14 gallons)...On the HW, I think it got up to 37-38 mpg. There are a few weeks that I have a little too much fun and I need to fuel up within 4-5 days hehehe:giggle::giggle:

20 GT auto with the 1.6 and i'm getting usually around 37-38 mpg with mostly highway driving. I have 51,000 miles on it already with a commute of 112 miles daily and working pretty much every single day, the miles have skyrocketed for me. My morning, I set the cruise control at 74 or 75, and going home I tend to drive between 80-85 and get higher mpg at that speed.

In the winter when I run my heavier wheels and snow tires, I get around 34mpg

Best I got on a longer road trip was 42mpg

Long distance 40 mpg no problem. Race Week I put 4000+ miles on the car, now at 45,000 miles. Added 13 more drag strip passes to it's log. Now at 70 plus runs.

In city/town mileage is between 21-26 depending on how heavy traffic is.
