These Are the Most Fuel Efficient Cars 2013

2013 Mitsubishi i_miev

Super Ultra Mega Efficient Vehicles

 

Do you ever look at pictures of the United Arab Emirates and suddenly Jefferson Starship comes on in your head “We Built This City”. I know we don’t get all of our oil  from the Middle East these days but we are still importing a lot of oil from the Persian Gulf and that nut job Chavez down in Venezuela.  I am tired of making other countries wealthy with our dollars, especially when they have bat shit crazies at the helm. I want to see the United States get rich off of Natural Gas and Renewable Energy. Gasoline was so 90’s let make a change and tell everyone to “suck it” by using the most fuel efficient cars 2013.

Let’s look at the Contenders for the most fuel efficient cars 2013:

 

  1. 2013 Mitsubishi iMiev – Its Electric – So obvious choice – 112 MPGe*
  2. 2013 Ford Focus Electric – Its Electric – 100 MPGe*
  3. 2013 Nissan Leaf – It Electric – 99 MPGe*
  4. 2013 Tesla Model S – Its Electric – 300mi Range
  5. 2013 Tesla Roadster – Its Electric – 245mi Range
  6. 2013 MINI-E – Its Electric 150 Mile Range

 

Most fuel efficient cars that are not all electric

 

  1. 2013 Toyota Prius PHV – Its sort of electric – 95 MPGe and 50 MPG Gas
  2. 2013 Chevy Volt – 94 MPGe – 37 MPG Gas
  3. 2013 Toyota Prius C – 53 MPG
  4. 2013 Toyota Prius – 51 MPG
  5. 2013 Toyota Prius V – 44 MPG
  6. 2013 Lexus CT 200h – 42 MPG

 

Most Fuel Efficient Cars 2013For most fuel efficient cars 2013 we have seen a lot more electric witchcraft than in prior years and there are many more getting ready to come up to the plate. So look for next year’s list to have even more electrics on the list. And I forgot the awesome 2013 Fisker Karma – Although I am not sure where to place it. (Help Me out if you know the Karma’s MPGe’s )

 

 

 

 

*How MPGe is configured

 

MPGe = EG / (g*EF + e*EW)

 

m = miles per gallon of liquid fuel used (MPG)

 

g = 1/m = gallons of liquid fuel used per mile (GPM)

 

e = plug-to-wheels electrical energy used per mile (Wh/mi)

 

EF = BTU per gallon of liquid fuel used (not necessarily gasoline)

 

EG = BTU per gallon of gasoline = 116,090

 

EW = BTU per Watt-hour (Wh) of electricity = 3.412
