I have a 1999 Fiat Uno, it is carbureted and has a 1297 cc engine that loves to rev thanks to itīs dual barrel weber carburetor. Because of the way I drive it Iīm getting 15 MPG, that is so funny for me. Isnīt that fuel consumption American V8 Truck territory?

My 2008 F150 (4.6 liter) weighs 5200 lbs (2360 Kg) and gets 18.5-19 MPG

Depends on how and where it's driven. Is it sitting in traffic and driving around towns at low speeds and climbing hills?

Or is it going down the highway at 90 km/h in a straight line on flat ground?

Happy driving in traffic, this car is fun as [censored] it encourages you to drive it hard (although I donīt go beyond 4500 rpm normally)

So true. I had a 2009 R3 for a little while. 17mpg on a good day. 16mpg was typical. That car will out handle almost anything else tho.

I don't see how a 1.3L Fiat Uno could physically use enough fuel to get 15 MPG, unless it is just sitting in traffic all day.
My 4.3L truck gets 13 MPG in mixed driving, and I can smell the raw fuel dumping out the exhaust. It's pretty worn out.

Weird. I'm able to get 19 and sometimes 20-21mpg during my 22 mile highway sprint to work on my 2004 Mazda RX-8 with manual transmission. 69mph on cruise control the entire way.
