2015 Chevrolet Colorado: Fuel Economy Update for August — A Healthy Jump in Combined MPG
by James Riswick, New and Used Car Editor on September 23, 2015
In the two months since our last traditional fuel economy summary, our 2015 Chevrolet Colorado has traveled to far-flung places like Wyoming and put on 5,502 miles in the process. Over that distance, its lifetime fuel economy has risen from 17.7 mpg to 18.4 mpg. That's good, but we're still falling short of the EPA-estimated 20 mpg combined.
Josh Jacquot's trip to Wyoming also saw benchmarks for best-tank range and mpg. He went a whopping 455.9 miles on a single tank (our previous best was in fact erroneously reported), which was good for 24.7 mpg.
That would be a bit better than the 24-mpg EPA highway rating. Well done.
