2014 Chevrolet Silverado: Fuel Economy Update for September

October 4, 2013

2014 Chevrolet Silverado

It's that time again. In the month of September our 2014 Chevrolet Silverado traveled over 3,500 miles. This far surpassed our monthly goal of 1,700 miles. Even though most of these were highway miles, fuel economy wasn't quite enough to beat any of our standing mpg records. Take a look.

Worst Fill MPG: 12.5
Best Fill MPG: 21.0
Average Lifetime MPG: 17.3
EPA MPG Rating: 19 Combined (16 City / 23 Highway)
Best Range: 469.2 miles
Current Odometer: 8,341

    Great mileage & Truck rarely share the same sentence. Large engines, high frontal profile, 2.5 tons. Takes energy to move. Feed the beast!

    You guys are a bit lower than I am. After 4,500 miles I am at 20 overall compared to your 17.3. Mine is a 5.3 4x4 6.5 foot bed running 34" tires and a small lift. I used Hypertech to adjust the speedometer and odometer so they are right on.

    I noted this in the piece "...Even though most of these were highway miles,..." On that basis I'll reserve judgement on the mileage.
