  • City 12 highway 16/17 and I believe it's a 20 gallon tank.(We looked at a 2012 recently) and how much to fill it depends on how much gas is a gallon in your area here in CT it's about $3.85 a gallon.

  • My husband has a 2011 and on empty it costs nearly $80. He has to fill it once a week but on the highway, he can go 400+ miles. It is bad on gas but it's a tank. He got sideswiped by a truck last year and the kids were scared but not hurt. If the same truck had hit him in his Sunfire, shudder to think.. I call it the Imperial Battle Cruiser.

  • My husband had one. It wasn't great on gas. He was commuting about 35 miles each way to work and had to fill up 2x per week. Most cars/SUV's are such that you can go about 300 - 400 miles to a tank of gas.

  • How far it can go depends on your driving. On the interstate my Armada can get 18 mpg but in town it averages 13 mpg. I live in the busiest part of town. Red lights at every block, heavy heavy traffic and LOTS of idle time kills my mpgs.

  • Go on the website for the car if it says the gas tank holds 20 gallons multiply that by the price of gas in your area.
