Fuel Efficiency

Nissan has manufactured models of GT-R for 12 years. They average 18.3 combined miles per gallon, with the latest 2020 GT-R below average at 18 combined MPG.

Government regulators estimate the fuel cost of the 2020 GT-R to be $2,700 per year. This estimate is based on 15,000 miles driven, 55% city driving and 45% highway driving, and premium gasoline.

Compared to other vehicles, you spend $6,250 more over 5 years compared to an average vehicle.

The GT-R consumes about 18 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 GT-R emits 482 grams of CO2 per mile, or roughly 7,230,000 grams per year. To put this into perspective, a normal tree absorbs about 21,000 grams of CO2 per year, so about 344 trees would offset these emissions. The GT-R does not have start-stop technology.
