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.

Last weekend my friend Jonathan and his wife Christine joined me for a trip up to Mammoth Mountain in Mammoth Lakes, California, for some fun on the slopes.
Luckily, I was able to snag our recent long-term addition, the 2014 Acura MDX SH-AWD, as much for its gargantuan space as for its all-wheel-drive capability.

During February, we drove more than 1,500 miles in our long-term 2014 Acura MDX. In that time we set a new high for cruising range and used nearly 100 gallons of 91-octane fuel, but our luxury crossover's lifetime mpg didn't change at all.

In the month of December 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.

New to our long-term test fleet in October, the 2014 Acura MDX hasn't seen a lot of action. Still, the seven-passenger MDX has racked up 1,700 miles on its odometer in just a few weeks.
