The Toyota Inbred Clown Car gets lots of praise as the most fuel efficient car in the Unite States. Not so much is said nor do owners seem to car that the Lamborghini get dubious honors. The Italian luxury car has two of the country's three most inefficient 2010

The Lamborghini Murcielago with manual and automatic transmission have the top and third worst gas mileage, according to the new cars guide release by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Here's this list:

1. Lamborghini Murcielago (manual) 8 mpg (city), 13 mpg (highway);
2. Bugatti Veyron 8/14;
3. Lamborghini Murcielago (automatic) 9/14;
4. Bentley Azure Bentley Brooklands 9/15;
5. Ferrari 612 Scaglietti (automatic) 10/17;
6. Ferrari 612 Scaglietti (manual) 10/16;
7. Maybach 57 10/15;
8. Bentley Continental Flying Spur Bentley Continental GTC 10/17;
9. Mercedes-Benz ML 63 AMG Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano 11/15;
10. Several BMW, Aston Martin and Porsche vehicles, 11/17.

Good to see a Lambo can still beat a Veyron at something.  :thumbsup:

Gee we were doing 20L/100kms in the Gallardo on Sunday and that was no highway cruising by any lengths of the imagination.

Yep, but not always that good. I'm either cruising round town or driving it pretty hard on the throttle. I'll check it properly sometime.

Edit: 35l/100km isn't 12mpg sadly - more like 7 mpg ( I think)  :eek:

sorry, you're correct mhh, found this link that does the conversion

http://www.pege.org/fuel/convert.htm

12mpg = 19.6L/100km

that's actually not too bad. my accord does 12L/100km when i mix normal and hard driving and its only a 2.4L, mate's Z4M does about 14ish combined.

Lamborghini is the least environmentally friendly car

By Laura Roberts

The Lamborghini has been named the least "green" car of the year by the Environmental Transport Association.


A study of 1,500 driver found that over the course of a year the Lamborghini Murcielago emits an amount of CO2 equivalent to felling a football pitch sized forest of trees.

The Lamborghini emits exactly five times more CO2 per kilometre than the car named Green Car of the Year, the 99g/km Toyota iQ.

Over a year of driving, the Toyota emits CO2 equivalent to that absorbed by three tennis courts of forest.

the greenest sports car was the Vauxhall Tigra.

Andrew Davis, director at the Environmental Transport Association, said: "With emissions five times worse than the greenest car, the Lamborghini is the bull in an environmental china shop. Thankfully, there are very few on the roads and there is an increasing choice of environmentally-sound cars.

"With the price of petrol at record levels and greater understanding about the threat to the environment there has never been a more important time to make fuel efficiency a deciding factor when choosing a car."

People in Scotland were found to be the greenest motorists with almost half of drivers saying they would buy a smaller car to reduce their driving costs.

Meanwhile only 34 per cent of drivers in the north of England would consider getting a smaller car - the worst area in the UK.
