2014 Chevy Corvette Stingray: Last Day and Road Trip MPG
February 10, 2014
Moab, Utah is not a terrible place to wake up. In fact, it's a pretty darned spectacular place to wake up. I could have stopped every 15 feet to take more pictures, but I limited the stops to about 4.
The route from Moab to Los Angeles isn't terribly impressive. There are some nice views and the speed limits are somewhere around 80 mph throughout Utah which is nice. But really, it's a 700-ish mile highway slog that lands you straight into Los Angeles's awesome rush-hour traffic.
The most notable things about this ride included the length of time the Stingray sat in four-cylinder mode at 80-ish mph; the temperature difference from start to finish: 18 in Moab, 91 in L.A.; and how much I dislike the Corvette's long-distance seating position.
More on that last bit later, for now, let's look at the numbers.
Total Miles: 4,976.2
Average MPG: 26.3
Best MPG: 30.4 (7th gear. Eco Mode. Minimal stops. Me.)
Worst MPG: 21.9 (89 octane + wind + multiple stops + fast. Me.)
Best Range: 471.9 (Scott)
Gallons of Fuel Used: 189.2
Gallons of washer fluid: 1
BBQ Stops: A bunch
Times Stranded by snow: .5
Burnouts on Snow Tires: A bunch. (Weeeeee!)
