2014 Kia Cadenza: Fuel Economy Update for August
September 9, 2014
Our long-term 2014 Kia Cadenza has racked up some miles in August, due in no small part to Senior Editor Matt Jones taking it to Colorado to drop his son off at college. That trip combined with our normal commutes added another 3,449 miles for the month with an average of 24.4 mpg.
In Matt's trip, he managed to best the previous top mileage for a tank with a better-than-EPA 29.9 mpg (the previous was 28.1). He also holds the record for most miles out of a tank (though not in the same refill) with a butt-numbing 441.3 miles (beating the previous 390.2 miles).
Worst Fill MPG: 16.3
Best Fill MPG: 29.9
Average Lifetime MPG: 21.9
EPA MPG Rating: 22 Combined (19 City/28 Highway)
Best Range: 441.3
Current Odometer: 15,799
