US EPA names the Bugatti Veyron as the worst gas guzzling car

Should we really be surprised that the Bugatti Veyron has been given the distinction of being the worst mileage offender in the US market? No? Yeah, we didn’t think so either.

The superduper car, the current record-holder of fastest car on the planet, came out of the Environment Protection Agency’s study with a mileage rating of just eight mpg – 29.4 liters/100 km – in city driving and 15 mpg – 15.5 liters/100 km - on the highway. Ouch.

On the opposite end of the spectrum and grinning mightily is Toyota’s venerable hybrid car, the Prius, which scored a mileage rating of 51 mpg – 4.6 liters/100 km – and 48 mpg – 4.9 km/100 km - thereby staking claim to EPA’s mythical crown of being the most fuel-efficient vehicle on US soil.

EPA’s study only confirmed what a lot of us already know by now. The Bugatti Veyron is one of the fastest, most powerful, and most expensive cars in the world, so you can pretty much expect that it doesn’t care so much when it comes to guzzling down fuel. After all, the people who have these cars are also those that can afford to buy their own gas stations. On the flip side, you’ll never mistake the Toyota Prius – and other Toyotas and Hondas , for that matter – as a car that can outrun law enforcement officers in the highway. The car’s calling card is efficiency, a word that doesn’t exist in Bugatti’s dictionary.

Well, you got a point in there. But I think having a Bugatti is just like buying a brand to tell the whole world on how wealthy you are.


We all know that diesel is not as faster as the regular fuel. However, using this synthetic diesel fuel would test the reliability of this car.


We all know that Bugatti comes in higher price tag. And I don’t think that spending tons of dollar for the fuel of this car would be a big deal for the owner.


Oh no! What’s happening to the Bugatti? I don’t think prospective buyers would be considering a car that is a gas guzzler. There are actually a lot of super cars that don’t consume too much gas. 


Why am I not surprised? Considering how powerful the engine on this thing is, it is only reasonable for the rating. I really don’t get why they are too obsessed with this car.


no one’s blaming no one...but i certainly want to blame someone when there’s too much lead or arsenic in my water or when I can’t regularly eat fish because of possible mercury poisoning!!


It is sad. Why? Well the Ultimate Aero, which is faster, is rated at 18mpg city and 27mpg highway.
One more reason why the Veyron is a demonstration of terrible engineering.
