2015 Kia K900: Fuel Economy Update for August

September 8, 2014

2015 Kia K900

August 11, 2014 was the first date we put gas in the 19.8-gallon tank of our 2015 Kia K900 sedan. Its 5.0-liter V8 engine and eight-speed automatic transmission haven't seen much open road action just yet, and it has been obliged to keep several in-town appointments for check-in activities such as photo shoots and measurement sessions.

And that's why we're not overly concerned about its average consumption rate of 15.3 mpg. We expect this to drift upward somewhat in the coming months.

But not too much. This massive Kia is a humungous rear-drive sedan. Our version with the 420-horsepower V8 carries an EPA Combined rating of 18 mpg, which breaks down to 15 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway

There's only a couple of mpg between here and there.

Worst Fill MPG: 12.6
Best Fill MPG: 19.5
Average Lifetime MPG: 15.3
EPA MPG Rating: 18 Combined (15 City / 23 Highway)
Best Range: 282.7
Current Odometer: 1,602
