2014 Acura MDX: Fuel Economy Update for May
June 6, 2014
It was a busy month for our 2014 Acura MDX, with more than 4,000 miles added to the odometer in May alone. Mike Monticello's road trip to Oregon accounted for a significant portion of those miles, and John Adolph borrowed it for an excursion to Nevada. How did thousands of miles of open highway affect the MDX's overall average mpg?
Lifetime mpg increased to 20.1 from the 19.3 reported last month. The MDX also achieved 27.4 mpg in one fill up, its best recorded fuel economy yet. This also marks the first time the MDX has hit its 27 mpg EPA highway rating.
Worst Fill MPG: 13.8 mpg
Best Fill MPG: 27.4 mpg
Average Lifetime MPG: 20.1 mpg
EPA MPG Rating: 21 Combined (18 City/27 Highway)
Best Range: 407 miles
Current Odometer: 14,795 miles
