Chevy Metro Tops Fuel Economy List

The Chevrolet Metro, averaging 41 miles per gallon (MPG) in city driving and 47 MPG on the highway, is the most fuel-efficient car sold in the U.S., according to fuel economy estimates for 1999-model vehicles released by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The EPA's lowest rating goes to the Ferrari 550 Maranello, which averages 9 MPG in the city and 14 MPG on the highway. Other fuel-efficient cars, according to the EPA, are a second model of the Chevrolet Metro, the Honda Civic, two Honda Civic HXs, the Toyota Paseo sedan and convertible models, the Mitsubishi Mirage, and the Toyota Tercel. Virtually tied for the top ranking among 1999 light-duty trucks are the Chevrolet Tracker two-wheel drive convertible and the Suzuki Vitara two-wheel drive sport utility vehicle.
