2015 Kia K900: Fuel Economy Update for May — Meets the EPA Numbers, Falls Short on Luxury
June 17, 2015
Another month, another 144 gallons of fuel streamed through our 2015 Kia K900. How many miles did that yield? Closest guess without going over wins absolutely nothing!
If you guessed 2733.9 miles, you'd be wrong. The correct distance is 2733.7.
During May we road-tripped the K900 to San Francisco and San Diego, which gave us some nice, above-20-mpg tanks. Then I took it for a few days, which resulted in a sweet 14.7-mpg tank that sucked up 17.43 gallons. Half-a-gallon more and I would've had the record.
In May, Ron broke it off with the K900 (then had an awkward follow-up), the boss dialed in ideal tire pressures, and we reinforced our opinions that the car's ride quality and driving character aren't sophisticated enough to really compete among executive-class sedans.
