Click Here for a good source to compare Gas Mileage of cars from fueleconomy.gov they compare cars each year and publish the respective results. The above numbers are also based on their publications and they write on their site: "Selecting which vehicle to purchase is the most important fuel economy decision you'll make.

The difference between a car that gets 20 MPG and one that gets 30 MPG amounts to $550 per year (assuming 15,000 miles of driving annually and a fuel cost of $2.20).

That's $2,200 extra in fuel costs in just four years!"
