2014 SLP Panther Camaro: Fuel Economy for January
February 4, 2014
We logged about 1,500 miles in our 2014 SLP Panther Camaro for January. The whole time we drove it conservatively, hardly ever exceeded 2,500 rpm and had Josh Groban on a perpetual playlist.
For the month, we averaged 35.6 mpg.
Wait, no, wrong car. Sorry. That's the Passat TDI. The SLP Panther Camaro? Need you even ask? Yes, somewhere a Shell executive is smiling.
So, for those 1,500 miles, we happened to log both our worst fill so far at 7.2 mpg (when we performed our instrumented track tests), plus our best fill so far at 18.6 mpg (me driving it about 260 miles on the freeway). It all averaged out to a monthly 13.3 mpg. Lifetime, we're looking at 13.7 mpg.
Worst Fill MPG: 7.2
Best Fill MPG: 18.6
Average Lifetime MPG: 13.7
Best Range: 296 miles
Current Odometer: 3,685 miles
