2015 Acura TLX: Fuel Economy Update for July - Squeezing a Tank for Nearly 500 Miles
August 13, 2015
Our 2015 Acura TLX has been out of commission for the majority of its test so far. With 5,150 miles on the odometer, we finally get our first snapshot of fuel economy performance.
The TLX has so far spent its time as a typical commuter. The mix is some city driving with most of its time on the highway, albeit in stop-and-go traffic. We're averaging 23.2 mpg, slightly above the EPA city claims. This figure may be padded a bit by Dan's recent 750-mile round trip to San Jose.
At just 25 percent of the way into our test, plenty can change. If the TLX has shown anything thus far it's that this car has range: Our best single tank exceeded 470 miles.

Best Fill MPG: 33.7
Average Lifetime MPG: 23.2
