2014 Kia Forte: Fuel Economy Update for May

June 4, 2014

2014 Kia Forte

During May, our 2014 Kia Forte saw 1,037.4 miles added to its odometer.

Did this make a dent in our EPA-beating 28.7 mpg lifetime mpg?

No. In fact, we've gone up a tick and are now averaging 30.4 mpg, a couple ticks above the EPA combined rating of 28 mpg.

Not bad.

Worst Fill MPG: 15.2
Best Fill MPG: 36.3
Average Lifetime MPG: 30.4
EPA MPG Rating: 28 Combined (24 City/36 Highway)
Best Range: 381 miles
Current Odometer: 17,662 miles

    If I was buying a 1-2 passenger car, this would probably be it. But the back seat is really small, so it's probably not in my future.
