2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS: Fuel Economy Update for August

September 5, 2013

2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS

We accumulated over 1,800 miles on our 2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS in August and broke through the 30,000-mile barrier. The bulk of the mileage was split between a drive to Monterey and a supporting role in a C7 Corvette comparison test. Take a look at its fuel economy vitals below.

Worst Fill MPG: 7.3 mpg
Best Fill MPG: 24.7 mpg
Average Lifetime MPG: 14.4 mpg
EPA MPG Rating: 16 combined (14 city / 20 highway)
Best Range: 415.9 miles
Current Odometer: 30,159 miles

    How is this a fuel economy update for August if the only thing you have here specific to August is how many miles you traveled during the month?

    they only post worst and best fills, not the average for the specific month. that's why these mileage posts are basically no more than a running average, kind of a waste of time

    oh, btw, 7.3 mpg--ouch!

    noburgers...take a look at the reports for the Passat TDI and the Focus ST. They give the average for the month, and they are supposed to.
