Why do all 2023 Outback trims get lower fuel mileage?
The 2023 Subaru Outback comes with added weight due to the exterior cladding and new EyeSight driver-assist safety technology. The new redesigned front facia could also be less aerodynamic than the outgoing 2022 models.
There haven't been any changes to the 2.5-liter engine or the 2-.4 liter turbocharged Boxer engines. The EPA did not say why the newly-refreshed 2023 Subaru Outback decreased one mile per gallon less in fuel mileage.
What type of gas does the 2023 Subaru Outback require?
With fuel prices rising, do you need the more expensive grade of gasoline for the 2023 Outback? If you buy any new 2023 Subaru Outback, Forester, Crosstrek, Ascent, Impreza, or Legacy, your vehicle is designed to run on 87 octane or regular gasoline, and you don't need expensive premium fuel.
