You may have noticed that the 2008 Pontiac G8 GT was absent from this week's monthly fuel economy summary. There's no sinister hidden meaning here. I'd simply used it as my airport car for a trip overseas and was unable to cough up the data.

So here it is, your Pontaic G8 GT lifetime fuel economy summary through June, 2009.

Best tank: 24.0 mpg
Best Range: 351 miles
Worst tank: 12.0 mpg

Lifetime average: 17.6 mpg

For comparison, the official EPA combined fuel economy rating for this car is 18 mpg, so we've pretty much nailed it.

The average mpg figure represents 23,783 miles of driving. In that time our G8GT burned 1,354 gallons of fuel. That represents about $3,000 to $3,500 at current prices.
