Subaru Legacy Gas Mileage

The all wheel drive (AWD) 2008 Subaru Legacy ranks among the most fuel efficient four wheel drive vehicles available in the USA today. The Legacy’s appeal only begins with its unique horizontally opposed Boxer engines, good gas mileage ratings, and reliable AWD system. Subaru’s handsome sedan has earned a coveted five-star government crash test rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

The 2008 Subaru Legacy is available with three different engine configurations:

  • Legacy 2.5i – 2.5 liter four cylinder Boxer engine, producing 170 horsepower (HP) and 170 foot pounds of torque.
  • Legacy 2.4 GT Limited and Legacy GT spec.B – 2.5 liter turbocharged and intercooled four cylinder Boxer engine, producing 243 HP and 241 foot pounds of torque.
  • Legacy 3.0 R Limited – 3.0 liter six cylinder Boxer engine, producing 245 HP and 215 foot pounds of torque.

Note: the EPA tweaked their testing procedure, starting with the 2008 model year, with the end result being that the 2008 MPG estimates are now lower than previous years. As always, YMMV.

#1 Best Gas Mileage Four Wheel Drive on 12.17.07 at 8:30 pm

[…] Subaru Legacy […]

#2 Mark on 04.21.08 at 10:31 pm

Will the gas range change if I put regular gas and not the expensive premium in my 2008 Legacy?

#3 jimbo on 11.11.08 at 9:56 am

I have two “beaters” 98mtneer,2000lincoln LS. On both, I get better mileage than rated if driving conservatively, I get 28-29 freeway driving (rating 22 on LS). I get 20 highway on Merc rated 17mpg It sounds like this does not happen with the newer cars Are their mpg ratings so accurate. I am in the mkt for a 4wd as we have a home in snow country in northern Az. Would appreciate any comments.

no putting regular gas in a car that takes premium will not give you better gas mileage, it’ll worsen your gas mileage, also it may even damage your engine.

#5 NATE on 05.05.11 at 4:03 pm

we love our Suzy Subaru… a Legacy Outback from 1995. She gets abt 30mpg and we use midgrade, seems to improve our milage and engine operation…
