Hyundai has manufactured models of Genesis for 6 years. They average 20.5 combined miles per gallon, with the latest 2014 Genesis above average at 21 combined MPG.

Government regulators estimate the fuel cost of the 2014 Genesis to be $1,850 per year. This estimate is based on 15,000 miles driven, 55% city driving and 45% highway driving, and regular gasoline.

Compared to other vehicles, you spend $2,000 more over 5 years compared to an average vehicle.

The Genesis consumes about 16 barrels of petroleum per year, according to the standard estimate of 15,000 miles driven. Most of the world's petroleum comes from countries like Russia, Saudi Arabia, the U.S., and Iraq.

The Genesis emits 412 grams of CO2 per mile, or roughly 6,180,000 grams per year. To put this into perspective, a normal tree absorbs about 21,000 grams of CO2 per year, so about 294 trees would offset these emissions. The Genesis does not have start-stop technology.
