The Toyota Prius and Honda Insight, I believe, as they're both hybrids. I think the Ford Fusion hybrid also gets good mileage. I've heard there are some diesel-engine cars in Europe that get 40-plus MPG, which is about what the best hybrids get.
Then there are electric cars like the Chevy Volt, which will only need a small amount of gas so you can go on extended trips betond its normal charging range.
If you really want to get excellent mileage from a hybrid you should try hypermiling. I've heard of hypermilers getting better than 100 MPG from hybrids.
We bought a 2010 Honda Insight this year. In warm weather it gets 58-62 MPG. In cold weather about 40-45 MPG.
Zenn Motors in Canada is supposed to be coming out with a total electric plug-in car early next year or late this year that has a range of over 200 miles on a single charge, but now electricity is getting very expensive, so, oh well.
