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!

Driven mostly around town in April, our long-term 2015 Kia K900 didn't break any fuel economy records during the past 30 days, but that wasn't such a bad thing, either.

We've driven our 2015 Kia K900 more than 1,200 miles in February.
In mixed city/highway driving, we averaged 17.3 mpg. No big road trips or vacations this month.

Most luxury sedans are moving away from using a V8 engine as the standard offering. The 2015 Kia K900 not only comes standard with a 420-horsepower V8, there are no other options. Thankfully, it gives you very few reasons to want anything else.

After Dan's trip to Oregon in our 2015 Kia K900 in December, January ended up being a pretty quiet month. We logged about 1,200 miles and observed fuel economy similar to what we've seen in prior months.

December was a busy month for our 2015 Kia K900 sedan, with nearly 3,400 miles added. My annual Christmas trip to Oregon and back is to blame for half of them, but since I've only just returned this is the first you've heard of it.

Our long-term 2015 Kia K900 added a hair more than 825 miles to its odometer while consuming just shy of 47 gallons of California's best premium 91-octane gasoline. Using all fingers and toes, this calculates to 17.6 mpg for the month.

We added about 1,200 miles to the odometer of our 2015 Kia K900 in October. It's been in the hands of editors who live near the office, who undoubtedly appreciate the cruiser's ability to soak up Los Angeles's poorly maintained roads. I predict some road trips in the K900's future if we want to hit our goal of 20,000 miles over 12 months.

"It can't be this bad," I muttered to myself last week as I tabulated the first three weeks of fuel consumption data for our new 2015 Kia K900 sedan.
The average worked out to 15.3 mpg, which compared poorly to the V8-powered Kia's EPA Combined rating of 18 mpg. A closer look at its component parts, 15 mpg City and 23 mpg Highway, suggested a distinct lack of freeway miles. More of them, I reasoned, would put things right. But there was only one way to confirm my theory.

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.
