2015 Hyundai Sonata: Road Trip to the Rock, Part 2
January 14, 2015
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.
