MPG and Running Costs

The Morgan 3 Wheeler is fairly economical for a car so geared towards fun. You can expect high 20s for the MPG figure when you aren't pushing on, with stats dipping just into the teens when driving quick. The fuel tank is more of an issue, as it's understandably small, meaning refuelling stops are frequent.

Morgan rigourously tests its vehicles before putting them on sale, but doesn't have the resources available to huge car firms and therefore can't put millions of miles on prototypes. This does mean that reliability is, to some degree, unproven. This is worth considering if you are intending to use the 3 Wheeler for any lengthy trips.

Couple this with the fact that the 3 Wheeler is largely a miserable thing to drive in the wet or Winter and it's very much a car best enjoyed on special occasions rather than a run to the shops.

Don't let that put you off however. During our time with the Morgan 3 Wheeler we did multiple motorway runs, plenty of B-road drives and even maxed the car out on a runway. It never put a foot wrong throughout.
