It's been over eight months since the Buick Enclave first pulled into our garage. Since then, it's racked up over 20,000 miles on its odometer and at least a couple of glowing blog posts; we can safely say that the SUV has won itself a few fans on our staff. Here's a snapshot of its most current fuel economy numbers:

Current mileage: 20,582

Best over life of test: 29.66 mpg*

Worst over life of test: 11.33 mpg

Overall average (combined city and highway): 17.52 mpg

Official EPA estimate: 16 mpg city, 24 mpg highway

*Note that the Enclave's best mileage was earned during a fuel economy test that involved lots of highway miles and some pretty judicious driving.
