Sports Car with the Best MPG
If you want a fun car, but don't want to have to stop for gas all the time, you're actually spoiled for choice. This list features a number of genuinely fun cars that'll get 30 mpg, or better, on the highway, as certified by the EPA.

Audi TT Coupe – 30 MPG Highway
Under its pretty skin, the Audi TT is basically an all-wheel-drive GTI. The extra weight for the AWD system means the TT can't match the GTI's 34-mpg highway fuel economy, but it still offers similar performance as the VW.

BMW 230i – 35 MPG Highway
If you're looking to save a little money over the i8, or you prefer a traditional drivetrain over a hybrid, you can still have fuel-efficient fun in a BMW. The 230i will hit 35 mpg on the highway if you choose the automatic, but it's still a blast to drive. Its 248-horsepower engine is powerful enough to hit 60 mph in either 5.2 or 5.3 seconds depending on the transmission.

BMW 340i – 32 MPG Highway
Amazingly, a rear-wheel drive six-cylinder BMW 3-Series can do 32 mpg on the highway, if you don't bury your foot too often. That's amazing for a 320-hp car that's a hoot on a twisty backroad.

BMW i8 – 76 MPGe
We weren't sure whether we should include the BMW i8 on this list or not because of how expensive it is. But in the end, we couldn't ignore it. In the speed department, the $140, 000-plus i8 will hold its own against similarly-expensive competitors, hitting 60 mph in a scant 3.6 seconds. Amazingly, it does that with the help of a turbocharged three-cylinder borrowed from the Mini Cooper and two electric motors. Despite how fast it is, the plug-in hybrid i8 is rated at 76 MPGe—though you'll probably get closer to 30 if you're driving it in Sport mode.

Chevrolet Camaro (Four-Cylinder) – 31 MPG Highway
The new Camaro SS is undeniably awesome, and if you get the automatic, that big V8 will do 28 mpg on the highway. Drivers looking for more fuel-efficient fun can eke out an extra three miles per gallon if they opt for the base engine, a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder. It makes 275 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque, good for 0-60 in 5.4 seconds, but it's also rated at 31 mpg highway.
