Non-turbo versions use regular-grade gas. Premium is required for the turbocharged GT.
Consumer Guide

The slow lane's hitting 80 mph, and almost nobody's in the slow lane. Getting 32 in that setting is exceptional.

Thanks to the new continuously variable (CVT) automatic transmission that's available in 2011 Subaru Legacy 2.5i models, the Legacy can have the highest fuel economy of any mid-size, all-wheel-drive sedan. With this transmission, we've met or exceeded its 26-mpg combined figure in a mix of driving.

Unfortunately, the rest of the Legacy lineup isn't nearly as fuel-efficient. If you want the manual transmission, it comes with significantly lower EPA ratings, and in either 2.5GT or 3.6R variants the Legacy is only rated 18/25.

Conclusion

While the base 2.5i versions of the 2011 Subaru Legacy is segment leading for fuel, when equipped with the CVT, other versions of the Legacy aren't nearly as green.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
