Why buy a small fuel efficient used car?
The average American drives 13,500 miles annually, and as we know there are plenty of great places to drive to in Colorado. The vehicle you choose will make a huge difference in the amount that you spend on gas alone. At current 2021 average Colorado gas prices of $2.90/gallon, and driving the same as the average Colorado driver, the savings between a vehicle getting 20 mpg vs 30 mpg is $652.50! That’s a lot of money! That’s even the difference of a car payment or two…! First and foremost, it’s important to decide what you need in a vehicle. If you don’t need the extra passenger capacity, the extra space for cargo, or the extra horsepower, a small efficient used car will save you money in your budget.
What makes for a fuel efficient car?
- Bigger isn’t always better: the bigger the engine, or the bigger and therefore heavier the vehicle, the more fuel it will need. Pick a vehicle that is adequate but doesn’t exceed your number of passengers and your transportation needs.
- Manual vs automatic transmission. Manual transmission vehicles average higher gas efficiency than their automatic transmission counterparts.
- Size of the engine. The larger the engine, the more fuel it will need to fire.

Our Car Buyers Say It Best
I was looking for a fuel efficient car. Found what I wanted. My sales person went above & beyond to help me reestablish my credit. All I can say is Thank God I came here! – Brian
After a frustrating experience with CarMax we had almost given up hope. We agreed to try one last place. Mark greeted us friendly and promised to do everything in his power to put us in something more efficient. It took a few hours, a few mistakes on paperwork, lol, and lots of laughs. But he did it! So excited to drive away! Thank you Mark! – Tiffany and Aaron
I needed a newer car to get back and forth to work. I have no credit to speak of. Mark worked with me to find a low mileage, low down payment and high mpg car so I can keep working. If it wasn’t for Marks I would probably be walking soon and out of work. – Kris
