2015 Hyundai Sonata: Road Trip to the Rock, Part 2

January 14, 2015

2015 Hyundai Sonata

Picking up from where we left off in Road Trip to the Rock, Part 1, the trip back from Morro Bay, California to Orange County in the 2015 Hyundai Sonata Sport went smoothly.

Sunday traffic was pretty light, partially in thanks to a reasonably early start time. The lack of stop-and-go no doubt helped the Sonata's fuel economy numbers. The 31.3 mpg we achieved for this almost-entirely highway trip was a bit off the EPA's 35 mpg highway estimate for the Sonata Sport. There was a very minor bit of puttering around town.

Data from the trip:
Total roundtrip miles: 512
Actual trip mpg: 31.3
Onboard indicated trip mpg: 34.2

Morro Bay has a quaint, fishing village vibe to it.

These little guys, just floating around on their backs, are sea otters. Call me lazy, but that looks like a pretty good life. Of note, there are two young ones in there. One is fully camped out on top of mom's stomach, the other is resting his/her head on mom.
