2012 Chevrolet Corvette Fuel Economy

7.0
Fuel Economy
While it's no fuel-sipper, the 2012 Chevrolet Corvette does relatively well with its massive power output thanks to tall gearing and aerodynamic profile.

The base, convertible, and Grand Sport Corvettes rate 16 mpg city and 26 mpg highway with the manual transmission, knocking 1 mpg off each score when equipped with the automatic. The Z06 does only marginally worse at 15 mpg city and 24 mpg highway, while the ZR1, with the most power in the bunch, also offers to worse fuel economy at 14 mpg city and 21 mpg highway.

While the EPA's figures are the baseline for considering the Corvette's gas mileage, it's worth noting that users, including our own testing, have seen much better highway mileage in real-world use.

You'd be amazed at the highway fuel economy you can eke out of the standard 2012 Chevrolet Corvette.
