Fuel economy is a numbers game. Each automotive manufacturer strives to achieve the highest fuel economy without alienating buyers with weird technology or boring styling. Engine technology has greatly advanced in the last decade to such a point where the gasoline engine still has potential to be a viable, fuel-efficient source of power. Below are 12 of the best cars that achieve over 40 mpg. Check them out.

12. 2014 Mitsubishi Mirage (34-47 City, 42-44 Highway)

The Mirage is a subcompact car sporting a tiny 1.2-liter engine producing just 74 horsepower. It’s fuel efficient, but far from fun.

    My 12 year old Skoda Octavia diesel still returns 72 mpg if driven at a steady 56mph. It is a 4 door, 5 seat car with a voluminous boot – in fact, we usually keep 2 fold-up bikes in the boot…no, not becuase the car breaks down often but because we like cycling!! In fact, one test of a good car is how often you see it being used as a taxi and in this respect, the Octavia wins hands down – it is used all over the place as a taxi. Wonder why it is not included above?
