2014 Kia Cadenza: Fuel Economy Update for December
January 6, 2014
Our 2014 Kia Cadenza Limited is rated by the EPA to earn 22 mpg Combined (19 City/28 Highway). The first fuel entry was on Dec. 2, 2013, so this month's report is also its running total.
Total Miles Driven: 1,198.3
Total Gallons Used: 60.1
Lifetime Average MPG: 19.9
Despite those discouraging numbers, we have a decent shot of achieving the EPA's 22 mpg combined figure because two (with about 300 miles each) of the five fill-ups thus far showed 23.2 and 23.6 mpg. There was one lead-footed average-killing fill up that produced 16.3 mpg. Stay tuned.
