2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Long-Term Road Test


2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray: Fuel Economy Update for April

May 5, 2014

2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray

In the past four weeks we've driven our Lime Rock Green 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray a little under 3,000 miles. No, it doesn't sit around much.

And as you can see, at a lifetime fuel economy average of 19.5 mpg, it's still delivering better mileage than any supercar has a right to. However, there's something important I need to tell you about this month's numbers.

The truth is I left two tankfuls out of this month's calculations: two tankfuls that were burned at a track day at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in Salinas, CA.

On the track the Corvette traveled 171.1 miles and burned 29.551 gallons of 91 octane. That's an average fuel economy of 5.8 mpg.

Obviously it wouldn't have been fair to muddy the Corvette's overall average by including those tankfuls.

Worst Fill MPG: 9.4 mpg
Best Fill MPG: 30.8 mpg
Average Lifetime MPG: 19.5 mpg
EPA MPG Rating: 21 Combined (17 City/29 Highway)
Best Range: 471.9 miles
Current Odometer: 19,283 miles
