News on the Bentley Continental GT’s fuel-economy figures is making headlines all over and the Bentley folks are apparently touting this ‘achievement’. What the heck is the world coming to? We are raving about the fuel-economy figures of a Bentley!

Check out more news on the Bentley Continental.

Either way – according to the EPA, the 2013 Bentley Continental GT V8 gets an estimated 15/24 mpg (city/highway) and 18 mpg combined. Based on 45% highway, 55% city driving, 15,000 annual miles and current fuel prices, it will cost you $5.69 to drive 25 miles and you will end up paying $3,400 in annual fuel cost.

If you manage to get yourself in a Continental GT V12, you will average 12/14 mpg and 19 combined when using premium fuel. If you use E85 fuel, that will drop to 8/10 mpg and 14 mpg combined. With the V12 your annual fuel-costs will run you over $4,400.

Now for those of you that concerned with performance figures of the Continental GT V8… here is a quick refresher.

    That is an automotive miracle.
    Never, ever was Bentley expected to produce a car that might get MPG starting with a 2 (as in 24mpg) in it.
    What next, a hybrid Ferrari?
