Q: How many miles per gallon does my car get?

asked by on

If I drive 75 miles per hour, how many miles per gallon do I get for my car?

My car has 3500 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there, thanks for writing in. Maximum fuel economy is typically in the 45-65 MPH range. Above 65 MPH, fuel economy falls off dramatically due to wind resistance. Below 45 MPH, engine gearing is not conducive to maximum efficiency but rather the drivetrain gearing is designed for power (acceleration). Hope this helps and best of luck.
