2013 Hyundai Santa Fe: Fuel Economy Update For August

September 4, 2013

2013 Hyundai Santa Fe

We added about 3,200 miles to our 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Limited during August. Much of that mileage came from Dan Edmunds' family road trip from California to Oregon.

For the month, we averaged 20.9 mpg. That's pretty much right on with the EPA's 20 mpg estimate for combined driving. We also saw our best range from a tank so far: 424 miles.

Maybe we should have hoped for better mpg given that this past month did include a lot of highway miles. But so far we're still matching EPA combined average in regards to lifetime fuel economy, as we're right at 20 mpg.
