2019 Kia Forte Gas Mileage and Fuel Range

Despite the number of flashy showpiece supercars you see in the living rooms and luxury garages of the ultra-rich, cars were made to be driven. Getting behind the wheel of an economy subcompact is getting more out of your car than the zillionaire who keeps his mega-rare 1980 Ferraroghinati Quadristellalama as a centerpiece in his stark-white mansion living room does.

That said, when it comes to getting the most out of your vehicle, knowing how far you can go is a huge factor. Some vehicles see you stopping more frequently along the route for fuel than others. Gas mileage is only half of this story. The other side is fuel-tank size. A vehicle could get 80 miles per gallon, only have a two-gallon tank and see you stopping more frequently than a vehicle that gets 12 miles per gallon but has a 30-gallon tank.

That’s why we like to look at the fuel range.

Fuel range is an informal calculation we perform at Friendly Kia. To achieve this number, we multiply the EPA-estimated city and highway miles per gallon by the size of the fuel tank. Finally, we multiply this number by ¾, as you should always fill up once you hit a ¼-full tank.

Our fuel range calculations are intended only for fun and comparison. Actual fuel range and mileage will vary depending on conditions and how you drive.

2019 Kia Forte MPG

The 2019 Kia Forte has an incredible EPA-estimated fuel range that sees the car get up to 41 highway miles per gallon. In its budget-friendly FE trim with the IVT transmission, you’ll see a fuel consumption of 31 city/41 highway/35 combined MPG, making it one of the most fuel-efficient vehicles in its class.

2019 Kia Forte Gas Tank Size

The 2019 Kia Forte gives you a 14-gallon tank to hold all the gasoline you’ll need for some incredible road trips.

Combining the Forte’s 31 city/41 highway/35 combined MPG with its 14-gallon gas tank and multiplying that number by ¾ gives us an amazing fuel range of 325 miles – 430 miles. From New Port Richey, you could hypothetically go all the way to Charleston, South Carolina and almost to Atlanta, Georgia before needing to fill up again at ¼ tank. Wow!
