2014 Acura MDX: Fuel Economy Update for September
October 3, 2014
September was good to our 2014 Acura MDX, with over 3,200 miles added to its odometer. By now the data is pretty mature. Like a late-season batting average, it's hard to move the needle much at this stage.
Indeed the best and worst tanks didn't change. No new range records were set. Nevertheless, this month's mix of city and highway miles was accrued at an average of 21.8 mpg, and that was enough to nudge the lifetime fuel economy average of the MDX up from 20.5 to 20.7 mpg.
Excluding the decimal point in the style of EPA window stickers, that figure rounds to 21 mpg.
Can you guess the EPA combined rating that's assigned to our AWD-equipped 2014 Acura MDX?
You're right. The answer is exactly 21 mpg.
Worst Fill MPG: 12.6
Best Fill MPG: 29.9
Average Lifetime MPG: 20.7 (4.8 gallons per 100 miles)
EPA MPG Rating: 21 Combined (18 City / 27 Highway)
Best Range: 541.1 miles
Current Odometer: 24,267 miles
