Fuel efficiency is one of the most important things when it comes to picking a vehicle. After all, the average person is using a vehicle for its intended use – transport, and just how much fuel that vehicle uses is important to overall cost of ownership.

Luckily, not every used car on the market out there could be considered a gas guzzler. And while it might seem like some used vehicles are just out there to use as much gas as they possibly can, that’s not the case with all of them. Each of the cars on this list gets great gas mileage, even when compared to new cars.
