In a related thread/thought... with these small tires I wonder about tire life... let's see, hmmm D x Pi is C... 19/15 should give me the ratio of increased travel vs a larger car? Well the offset is that smaller tires cost less. What sort of tire life do Minis get?

Doesn't it have more to do with driving style and weight on the tire?

These cars have 15 and 16 inch wheels, so they are not appreciably smaller than tires on an average sized car. The tires on my Audi do about 850 revs per mile, the 500 is about 900 revs per mile. Factors like driving habits, road and weather conditions along with tire type, etc., etc. all come into play. I would think it would be near impossible for someone to predict tire life.

Over 500 miles on mine so far. My daily commute is approximately 60 miles round trip. Interstate speed for me is 80-88mph. MPG has improved to 36-37:)

If you can keep it around 75mph without getting run over it will top 40. :pride:

Having adjusted my driving quite a bit, and making much better use of the manual transmission, I'm now averaging about 40.7. That's mixed highway (~65), routes (~50), and city driving. Love it! I should add that I live on the steepest hill in town...

(1) try ecodrive - you know how to setup, activate, analyze? My eco score hovers around 67.
(2) set EVIC to show instant mileage. That will show you that first/second gear eat gas (8 or 12); you can learn from that what eats gas.
Those two will help you modify the behaviour of your right foot.
My wife drives our auto lounge like a gocart and gets 26... I get 30.
The car can deliver really good mileage... octane matters not at all.

I reached 32mpg this week with my lounge automatic. I have 780 miles on the car so far and the mileage hopefully will continue to climb. I am driving city and "country roads" which I believe should be a new category. I do not "hyper-mile" drive but I am careful to slowly roll on the gas at starts.

The car does show instant mileage on the EVIC display which can help you understand the relationship between you right foot and the numbers you see.
Also, eco drive can help and will coach you on acceleration., braking, gear shifts...
Those are my thoughts... hope I did not offend you.

I noticed my 500c gets the best mpg when I don't stomp to overly hard on it from a stop (too often) and shift to keep it in the 2200 - 3000 rpm range. Lugging an engine makes it work harder so I'm thinking that shifting too soon is almost as much gas use as getting near redline all the time

Since you said it's an automatic, you might want to try letting it operate withOUT pressing the Sport Button for a tank or two and see what happens. I own a manual, but understand the SPORT button causes the automatic to hold the gears till high rpms which won't do your mpg any good.

I don't know. I get a consistent average 30MPG here in the city. I drive an automatic, lots of stop and go, lots of idling. It is rarely in Sport mode because its annoying to me in traffic.
I have never had less than 27 average, 27 is usually what I get when I'm consistently driving the car like I stole it (or, as Felnus puts it, giving it an Italian tune-up :).

A couple of days of highway and it goes up to 34.

I don't think that's too bad considering I could not, for the life of myself, get my EcoDrive score up because there's no way you can drive like that around here without getting shot.

Thanks for suggestions-still trying to navigate this page-so forgive impersonal response.......Ok-my gas mileage issues continue. I am getting 15.7 avg mpg in city -running with super unleaded and driving like an old woman-AND sport button OFF. I have service guy seeking answers internally with Fiat mechanic's webpage-he says. I was driving hard before and getting 19mpg....has worsened since changing habits. Main computer was reset in car-because of a computer glitch-which should make car relearn habits and maximize consumption...NO HELP. Does anyone out there have same issue? I am so frustrated buying a gas sipper and getting Jeep wrangler gas mileage. If this is not fixed I will seek a new replacement vehicle through Fiat. This would be horrendous press for Fiat if they refuse remedy. I love car-want it fixed -but I bought it for economy and not keeping it if this is gas mileage. any suggestions out there in Fiat land? thanks!

OK Paris11, it is time to see some real numbers. Go today and fill your tank and post on this thread your current miliage and the amount of gas it took to fill up the tank. Then post "again" next week after you fill up again. I need to see this for myself!!!!!!!

The 500 was the perfect vehicle for the mountain passes and the twisty canyon roads that made up a major portion of the trip. Surprisingly, head winds and cross winds have little effect on it. It is very stable in those conditions and I had to look at the trees bending in the wind before I recognized it was blowing. We were in 107 degree weather in Moab and the air conditioning did it's job. I have never been a sunroof fan but, the sun roof on the FIAT is of size and position that really adds to the driving enjoyment. At times we had it open with the air on so as to take in the canyon walls. The overall mileage was 42mpg,
which is pretty decent. Outside of Pocatello, Idaho, a idiot Mayflower mover truck driver tried to do a U turn on a barren two way highway and ended up getting the tractor jackknifed in the loose stone on the side of the road. The trailer spanned the entire road like a huge wall. While traffic began to pile up, I got out to look the situation over, got back in the 500 and proceeded to do an end run around the tiny bit of space that was behind the rear end of the trailer. There was just enough space for me to make it around and continue on our way. There was no rear traffic for the next 100 miles or so...

Gawd, I love little cars!

Actually yes, but I was three or four at the time. The mileage Paris11 is getting just doesn't make sense. As an example, I filled up a few weeks ago, drove three hours to the Dragon, drove 30 or 40 miles on it at 4500 to 6000 rpms+(8 to 12mpg) the whole time, and then drove most of the way home before filling up again and I still averaged just under 38 mpg for that tank. Granted I have a 5-speed but still.

Between the 2 fill ups, that's around 33mpg US. I'm happy with that.

I just drove to Baltimore, 444 miles, from Columbus and back for a family visit. I drove conservatively, 2 - 3 mph over the speed limit. My automatic Sport got 37.5 mph average for the trip. I mostly fill up with mid-grade; it depends on whether the gas station gouges for premium.

I drive around 65-70% hwy miles and very rarely drive over 60 mph; coast up to stop lights and all of that good stuff. I either use premium gas or use regular gas and put about a half a bottle of octane booster in. I am loving the car so far.

looks good
(1) did you use Cruise Control for that MPG
(2) what speed did you drive; I have found several MPG by dropping from 70 to 65 mph
I also have noticed that at these higher mpgs that waiting at a stop light costs .2 mpg for every 20-30secs idling, clearly that's why the stop/start feature is coming (me thinks)
My lounge (automatic) costs maybe 3 mpg and at 12k miles, mileage is up several mpg from early on, keep the faith!

I used CC at times, but mostly I used my foot. I averaged 70 mph for the trip so a combination of 60 to 80 mph driving.

I'm not sure if drafting would help, but when I make this trip, there are always several opportunities to get behind big trucks for miles at a time and draft them. There are some inherent dangers in doing so, but an alert driver will be able to avoid them and make the most of lower wind drag. Anyone else try it?

Drove my Abarth to the dealer to get the PCM update yesterday.

130 mile round trip, steady expressway 60-65 mph. Average of 41.X mpg for this trip. This was a 50/50 mix of cruise control/me. Premium fuel.
Typical spirited driving in town gets me down to 27-29 mpg.

I'm amazed at how good this car can be on gas, and yet beat a 540 hp Ford Shelby in a 1200 miles race (Targa Newfoundland)!

For those of you posting MPG on the highway, do you notice any difference with
the sport mode engaged or not?

Robert, I talked to Corporate about this. They told me the Sport mode would only affect fuel economy marginally;
nothing worth worrying about. (For the 500's. No word yet on the Abarth or Turbo).

If I understand what I've heard correctly it simply reduces resistance on a diode as the 500 gas pedal runs on a
drive by wire system.

As for myself personally I was on a 3 hour road trip and averaged 49.5 to 49.8 MPG on the Highway.
I have heard from other people as well who have averaged 49 MPG's on long distance road trips as well.

Curious to see how the 2013's will fare for real world MPG's as they have a taller final gear boosting EPA
ratings on the stick shift 31 to 40.

The "Instant Fuel Economy" can be useful. Relearning how you accelerate or when you can let off acceleration can earn a few mpg. There's a whole section on getting more mpg on FuelEconomy.gov: http://www.fueleconomy.gov/feg/drive.shtml

There's a window with a movie in it about two kinds of driving styles, using the same car. You can also choose to read just the text.

Also on the same site, all kinds of info on why your mileage may vary. The obvious one on breaking in the engine:
"New vehicles will not obtain their optimal fuel economy until the engine has broken in. This may take 3–5 thousand miles."

You can look around at the Your Mileage May Vary section here:
http://www.fueleconomy.gov/feg/why_differ.shtml

You might have a combination of factors, like winter gasoline, new car break-in, and a lot of enthusiasm driving your Sport.

My mileage isn't good at all, and it won't be good in any car. Why? Because I still have to travel the same route to the store. And that means a couple of crowded intersections, with LONG waits at lights and cram-packed parking lots. I looked at my "average speed" and it was 19 mph. LOL.

I have a small stretch of 40 mph, but the rest is 30, 25, or the parking lot.

I don't know your exact route or speed variations, but it doesn't take much to gobble up the gas while sitting (and sitting and sitting and sitting) at traffic signals or slow traffic.

If you want to get a good idea of what your highway miles could be, do the test.

Gas up close to freeway, to first click. Get on freeway, drive at around 55 mph for 50 miles, turn around, come back at same steady speed to same gas station, fill up to first click again. Your receipts and odometer will tell you what you got, miles divided by gallons used.

You'll want to make the drive when the traffic is at a minimum. So you can just putter along at the same speed without slowdowns.

I might do that drive this weekend, and maybe some other folks can do it too.

You'll probably have a "wow" moment, when you see what you could be getting, were driving conditions perfect.

This is how vehicles are tested for EPA estimates:
http://www.fueleconomy.gov/feg/how_tested.shtml

The closest to you can come to that ideal environment is doing the steady speed on the highway when it's not crowded. Because that guy, in the lab, never has to deal with extra stop lights or heavier than usual traffic. It's the same routine, all the time in the lab.

Approximately 2,500 miles on my 2012 pop 5 spd. now, average miliage since new is 38.3 mpg, mixed driving, sport button on 90% of the time, shifting around 3 grand. Not a squeek or rattle anywhere, the car is absolutely PERFECT and runs like a top. Solid as a rock. Can you tell i like my Fiat?

I'm averaging low to mid-30's highway/city combination with my 2013 Sport automatic which I bought new as a leftover last July. I've just gone past 28,000 miles without any problems However, I've brushed 40 mpg a couple times on local highways that had NO traffic.

My last tank was 34.3 mpg via Fuely app, computer showed 33.6 mpg. Sometimes the computer is off but not by too much honestly.

My girlfriend has a 2015 Pop automatic. 75% highway driving it gets 32 mpg using 89 octane always.

My 2012 abarth gets 24-27mpg with a mix of city and highway. Always use 93 octane

2013 Sport manual- averaging 37.4 mpg over 13 fill ups per fuelly.com. Roughly 25% city/intown driving. Noticed a significant bump in mpg after switching back to 92 octane E10 from 87 octane E10. Just switched to 91 octane ethanol free (all the local BP stations have switched their premium to it) ... too early to say about mpg but the motor seems happier.

I'm kind of jealous of the mileage everyone is getting.... I got 25mpg on my last tank 80% highway...25mpg good thing this car costs 28 bucks a tank.. I may need to drive more conservative.

dunno...... 25 seems okay to me ...... i'm getting 22.8 mpg with my 2013 abarth (mostly city driving, averaged over the last ~1000mi.) I do admit to driving like an adolescent hooligan much of the time
