07 Scion tC 23/30















07 Pontiac G6 Sedan 4 cylinder - 23/33















07 G6 GT or GXP V6 (both engines are much more powerful than the tC) - 20/28































I get about 25 on the highway when my car runs. Its an 05 tC SC.































You clearly drive in the city and its a brand new car. It can take up to 5,000 miles before its full broken in and your mileage will gradually increase as it breaks in. Stop and go traffic and extra weight will also kill your mileage.































CS7 - There is no way you get 40 mpg in a tC unless you are towing it at least 10 miles. The tC also has more agressive gearing than the G6 which will offset the 300 lb weight disadvantage.

You will get 1-2mpg better in the Scion.































The tC and G6 have about the same power. 160HP and 164HP.















But the Scion is lighter so it is better on gas.































If you accelerate slower and drive at speed limit, you can get 40mpg on cruise control on highway at 60mph and you can get an average of 28mpg.
