The 2003 MINI Cooper S used an older less fuel efficient motor.

Our 2008 MINI Cooper used 6.58l/100km. That is 35.7 mpg-US. We always used regular grade fuel.
Thank you. I lived in Europe '65-'72 (outside of Paris, then Stuttgart, then down in Mons and Groans, as we called it, in Belgium), forgot how to figure it out. Klicks I'm pretty good with. My 2011 Mini required premium.
