The Best High MPG Cars

SUV in the mountains

Summer has arrived! These are the days to celebrate backyard BBQ’s, beach volleyball, and longer evenings. Unfortunately, it’s also the season for higher fuel prices. If you are in the market for a new used vehicle this summer, an important feature to be vigilant about is the vehicle’s MPG rating. MPG stands for miles per gallon and is a measure of how fuel efficient a vehicle is. This is a decisive feature for several reasons, one being the skyrocketing price of gasoline, especially during the summer months, and another being the protection of our environment. We are now living in a “green” world. A fuel-efficient vehicle helps decrease pollution emissions by a large quantity. Here we review five vehicles with a strong fuel efficiency rating that you can find at Drive Now.
