Best Pre-Owned Models with High Gas Mileage

A lightly owned Alfa Romeo vehicle can still perform with good fuel efficiency provided that you pay attention to smart driving habits. The 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia, for example, gets 24 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway.

Similarly, the 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio delivers 22 mpg on the city and 28 mpg on the highway. These cars more or less can still deliver the same mpg as it did when it was new. This is especially so of certified pre-owned vehicles that have undergone a rigorous multi-point inspection.

How to Maximize Gas Mileage

Regardless of the vehicle make and model, you have to care for your pre-owned car to maximize gas mileage. Here are some ways to get the most bang for what you pay at the fuel pump.

  • Most Alfa Romeo cars require synthetic oil. Refrain from using low-cost conventional motor oil that affects engine performance, and subsequently gas mileage.
  • Minimize stop-and-go driving to the extent possible. The engine consumes more fuel when it’s constantly stopping and accelerating rather than cruising at a consistent speed.
  • Change the fuel filter. Dirty filters allow debris to enter the engine and compromise performance. Typically, these filters need to be replaced every 10,000 to 15,000 miles.
