2015 Hyundai Sonata: Fuel Economy Update for February

March 5, 2015

2015 Hyundai Sonata

In February we didn't use our 2015 Hyundai Sonata Sport for any road trips. Much of the driving was commuting around in Edmunds' home base of Los Angeles. In total, we added about 1,500 miles.

As a result our fuel economy for the month hovered around the lower end of the spectrum.

For the month, we averaged 25.4 mpg. That's nearly identical to our lifetime average of 25.2 mpg after almost 5,000 miles. The EPA says we should be expecting 28 mpg combined (24 mpg city/35 mpg highway). We did post another above 30 mpg fill-up this month (31.3 mpg), though. And at this point, it's still pretty early in our test. I'll be taking our Sonata on a highway-biased drive soon, and I'll be curious to learn what fuel economy I get.

Worst Fill MPG: 19.3
Best Fill MPG: 31.7
Average Lifetime MPG: 25.2
EPA MPG Rating: 28 Combined (24 City/35 Highway)
Best Range: 370 miles
Current Odometer: 4,967 miles
