2015 Acura TLX: Fuel Economy Update for September - Road Trips Increase Lifetime MPG
by Cameron Rogers, Associate Editor on October 9, 2015
We added 2,703 miles to the odometer of our 2015 Acura TLX in September, an impressive number that's just short of the 2,709 miles we added in August. Lengthy commutes and a couple of road trips accounted for most of the TLX's highway-heavy month. And as Dan Edmunds and I have learned, the TLX will beat EPA highway estimates even while moving at a decent clip with several passengers. Two of the nine fill-ups for the month, for example, surpassed the 31 mpg mark.
Here's how September shaped up for the TLX:
Brent and Dan both beat the highway estimate during their travels, earning 32.5 mpg and 31.6 mpg, respectively. The TLX averaged 25.8 mpg for the month, bumping its overall fuel economy from 24.0 mpg to 24.6. The TLX is just a few long stints away from averaging the EPA combined rating of 25 mpg.
Worst Fill MPG: 14.6 mpg
Best Fill MPG: 33.7 mpg
Average Lifetime MPG: 24.6 mpg
EPA MPG Rating: 25 Combined (21 City/31 Highway)
Best Range: 33.7 miles
Current Odometer: 10,327 miles
