Chevy Corvette Gas Mileage: 1978-2009

From its debut in 1953, the Chevrolet Corvette has endured as America’s sports car. Unmatched by the competition, today’s Corvette delivers a legendary package that combines exhilarating acceleration, exuberant handling, iconic style, and most surprisingly, respectable highway gas mileage.

Although the classic Corvettes of the sixties and seventies were known to drink copious amounts of fuel (most notably the multi-carburated big-block beasts), today’s fuel-injected 6 liter Corvettes are downright miserly by comparison.

Owners of the highest horsepower modern 7.0 liter Corvettes pay a slight penalty in gas mileage for the extra performance, it’s hardly a drop in the bucket of petrol, and downright remarkable for the level of performance. The standard 6.0 liter Corvette is no slouch by any means, as it delivers highway mileage figures in the high twenties and can flirt with 30 miles per gallon on the open road when driven with a steady foot and a bit of restraint.

Okay, so if you’re thinking about buying a Corvette, gas mileage might just be the last thing on your mind. But it’s more fuel for the fire, so to speak, as you try to sell the acquisition to your significant other. “And gee honey, did you know that the Corvette is good for 28 miles per gallon on the highway? That’s 30% better than the SUV …”

I have a ’79 13 in town is right, but HWY is only 15.
Thanks for the info.

#2 paul on 01.27.08 at 3:57 pm

My ’81 auto gave me 17 mpg this fall. Neat website.

#3 Mike on 05.08.08 at 9:23 pm

My ’81 vette gives around 14mpg around town but have hit 22mpg on the road. And it looks great!

Drove (2002 C5 M6) home from the beach last night and attempted high MPG. Got home on less than a 1/4 tank and was averaging 29MPG.

#5 Drew on 07.20.08 at 11:32 am

My 99 C5 gets about 17 city, and about 24 highway

#6 Tom on 08.11.08 at 7:51 pm

People on corvetteforum say that the C5 can get 33 mpg so says the DIC and when checked at the pump seems to be spot on.

#7 scott on 09.24.08 at 2:19 pm

my C5 got 31 to 34 mpg on a level hwy surface.
with a little fishtailing i could get down to 6 mpg.
