2014 Acura MDX: Fuel Economy Update for March

April 3, 2014

2014 Acura MDX

We added about 2,300 miles to our 2014 Acura MDX during March. A good chunk of that mileage came from Mike Monticello's road trip to Mammoth Mountain.

Mike's highway-biased trip helped boost the MDX's fuel economy a little and he posted our MDX's best tank so far at 24.9 mpg. For the month in total, we averaged 21.3 mpg.

Notably, that's right at the EPA's estimate of 21 mpg in combined driving. But our MDX's lifetime average is still down in comparison, which is at 19.1 mpg after more than 9,600 miles.

Worst Fill MPG: 13.8
Best Fill MPG: 24.9
Average Lifetime MPG: 19.1
EPA MPG Rating: 21 Combined (18 City/27 Highway Combined)
Best Range: 385 miles
Current Odometer: 9,602 miles
