Mileage in My 1976 Toyota Celica by Type of Driving

Gas Mileage

Here's some interesting trivia about gas mileage. Have you ever wondered which brand, grade, or octane rating gives better gas mileage? Well, I've collected thousands of miles of data on a wide variety of brands, octane ratings, grades, etc. All this information is from my 1976 Toyota Celica. I have found these results interesting, I hope you do as well.


Type of Driving

What's the real difference between highway and city driving? Here are some excerpts from my gas mileage records to ponder over.

Of course, there will be variations from car to car, etc... So don't expect your results to exactly mirror these.

Type of DrivingNumber of EntriesAverage MPG
City 384 15.15
Highway 609 23.35
Mixed 362 20.57

I, of course, make no guarantees about what kind of gas mileage you may receive in your vehicle, even if it is a '76 Celica with a 20R and nearly half a million miles under the hood, because there are way too many variables that come into play...
