I think the reason he said that the difference between the two is negligable is because of the up front cost difference of the 2 vehicles. Unless you are planning to get a used Prius that is cost similar. The difference in the $7000+ up front cost can make Prius(Monthly Payment + Gas) >= Cruze(Monthly Payment + Gas) for several years.

It also depends on how you drive city. My best milage on this car so far is city driving. I assume that by wanting to use less oil, you are saying you are more eco friendly?

I just recently got 46 mpg city, I have achived above 42 city on multiple occations so its not a fluke. With slow accelerations, coastings, and driving in the highest gear possible its easy to achieve 40+ city. Even in Downtown Toronto on the weekend at night I was able to get 37 - 39 city.

At 55 - 60 mph you will probably see 47 - 50. I have gotten 52mpg @ 64 mph but that required truck drafting.

Better for the environment, but also better for my wallet and the nation.



Wow! I'm hoping we can average 40. Anything over that will be icing on the cake.

What type of transmission? I'm shocked your city numbers are so much higher than the EPA numbers.
I have the manual trans on my eco. I am not even sure why anyone would get the A/T on the eco, unless they just like the ECO emblem. Maybe on the 2012 the A/T will make a difference.
