2015 Hyundai Sonata: Fuel Economy Update for March
April 6, 2015
Our long-term 2015 Hyundai Sonata didn't go on any long road trips during the month of March. It hit the 5,000-mile mark early on in the month, but from there it was mostly city miles and short commutes for the Sonata.
As a result, the lifetime average fuel economy stayed exactly the same: 25.2 mpg. That's not terrible, but it doesn't match the EPA's estimate of 28 mpg combined and we've yet to crack their estimate of 35 mpg on the highway. Maybe it's time for some hypermiling.
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: 370.4 miles
Current Odometer: 5,555 miles
