1991 Acura NSX: Beating the EPA...in L.A.?

June 14, 2012

After fueling up the NSX recently, I did the quick math and realized I'd averaged 20.05 mpg. Not bad for a weekend of enjoying this exotic sports car. This included a mix of L.A. traffic and open freeway conditions. Oh, and also some spirited driving on mountain roads that saw the tach's needle sweep over into the happy zone.

Out of curiosity I looked up the EPA numbers which came up as 16 city, 22 highway and 18 combined. We're averaging just about 21 mpg. Three mpg over the EPA combined number? For our team of leadfoots in L.A.? Impressive.
