The high cost of petrol is getting a lot of people thinking about their current car. If you have made the decision to purchase a new car and fuel efficiency is key, use the following list to facilitate the process. Note that the figure shown is based on a “combined cycle” which is based on both city and highway driving. If you use your car more in the city - often stopping, starting and accelerating, you will use more fuel.
According to the GreenVehicleGuide, the top 15 most fuel efficient cars in Australia are:
|Ford WS Fiesta EcoNetic 1.6L 5 seats||Diesel||3.7L/100kms|
|Toyota Prius 1.8 5 seats||Elec/Petrol||3.9L/100kms|
