It’s probably rare, if not completely unheard of, that anyone goes out and buys a minivan with the objective of spending as much money as possible. So even though automakers know that a lot of people will spend more money when it comes to something they need for their family, making a super expensive minivan is probably a losing strategy. But a lot of people don’t consider the total cost of ownership when they’re shopping for a new vehicle, or they willfully underestimate how much they actually drive and how much gas they’ll burn through. If it’s time to start shopping for a new minivan, keep these factors in mind. Our list of the top 10 gas guzzling vans will provide some insight about which minivan models are likely to cost you more over the years you’ll own the van. Though these low gas mileage vans offer plenty of other benefits and amenities, the gas consumption is often a compelling factor in vehicle choice.

It’s true that some of these low MPG vans might have reasons for making the list, that might endear these models to some shoppers. One of the most common, and obvious, reasons a car gets poor fuel economy is because it has a powerful engine, and it’s easy to see how one of these low fuel economy vans would still be very appealing to the right buyer – a parent who needs a little pep to spice up carpool duty, perhaps, or a family that spends a lot of time on long highway road trips. In such cases, the mileage tradeoffs might be worthwhile. Other gas guzzler vans might earn this status because they’re loaded up with heavy energy draining features, such as extensive stereo equipment or a lot of cargo carrying accessories. Even though the lowest gas mileage vans might cost more at the pump, in some cases it’s worth the sacrifice.
