2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray: Fuel Economy Update for July
August 12, 2014
Our 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray didn't stray too far from the office during July, racking up fewer than 900 miles. For comparison, our fleet average for the month was about 1,950 miles per car. It seems that most of last month's road trips required more than just space for two people and a pair of duffel bags.
The sports car's city driving habits this month were reflected in its fuel consumption. For July, the thirsty V8 demanded 62.7 gallons over 881.2 miles, for an average of 14.1 MPG. Typically horrible traffic around town contributed to decreasing its lifetime MPG from 19.0 to 18.8. A few highway trips will clear that right up.
Worst Fill MPG: 9.4 mpg
Best Fill MPG: 30.8 mpg
Average Lifetime MPG: 18.8 mpg
EPA MPG Rating: 21 Combined (17 City/29 Highway)
Best Range: 471.9 miles
Current Odometer: 23,494 miles
