This factor is measured by the value of CO2 per kilometer (car releases CO2 to the atmosphere). If the value is small than yes, car is economical. If it’s big (above 300) than it will cause high petrol costs.
In case of SLS AMG 6.2 CO2 emission is 300 grams per kilometer.
This is a Gas-Guzzler. The 8 cylinder engine is very thirsty and you might visit gas stations quite frequently.

Yearly fuel expenses for SLS AMG

If you drive 20 000 kilometers a year (that’s 12 427 miles) and spend half of that time in town while other half on open road you will end up burning 2660 liters of fuel.
