2014 Acura MDX: Fuel Economy Update for January

February 3, 2014

2014 Acura MDX

In the month of January we drove about 850 miles in our long-term 2014 Acura MDX.

In that time, we refueled three times with 91-octane gasoline and averaged about 16 mpg, well below the official EPA estimates. Two of those fill-ups were by me, so I must be the heavy-footed culprit.

Worst Fill MPG: 13.8 mpg
Best Fill MPG: 23.4 mpg
Average Lifetime MPG: 18.4 mpg
EPA MPG Rating: 21 Combined (18 City/27 Highway)
Best Range: 353.3 miles
Current Odometer: 5,154 miles

    isn't it a bit late for the update on December's MPG?

    My experience from our 2013 Pilot is that speed and amount of hills you drive make a BIG difference. Maybe this is obvious, but since this is the first vehicle that has the MPG display, its news for me/us. For instance, we drove on a very flat 60 MPH road on the way out to Alabama and hit an average of 29 MPG! Then, it speed up to 70 MPH limit and our MPGs quickly dropped down to about 25 MPG by the time we got there. We average 19 going over our hilly area and hit maybe 23 on high speed interstate trips.
