Fuel Efficiency

Mitsubishi has manufactured models of Mirage for 24 years. They average 28.0 combined miles per gallon, with the latest 2020 Mirage above average at 39 combined MPG.

Government regulators estimate the fuel cost of the 2020 Mirage to be $1,000 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 $2,250 less over 5 years compared to an average vehicle.

The Mirage consumes about 8 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 Mirage emits 228 grams of CO2 per mile, or roughly 3,420,000 grams per year. To put this into perspective, a normal tree absorbs about 21,000 grams of CO2 per year, so about 163 trees would offset these emissions. The Mirage does not have start-stop technology.
