2006 Kia Sedona EX - Fuel Mileage
March 29, 2007
We've been driving the Sedona for about nine months now and we already have over 21,000 miles on it. This morning I was reviewing the fuel log to see what kind of numbers we are earning.
On the average over the life of the vehicle we have been getting 17.7 miles per gallon. Our best-ever tank was 29.3 mpg, our worst was 12.3 mpg.
We're running a little below par as Kia's advertised numbers are 18 city and 25 highway.
Its competitors report similar numbers. The Dodge Caravan claims 17/25, the Honda Odyssey 18/25, the Toyota Sienna 19/26.
Those numbers really aren't that bad for a vehicle that weighs 4,387 pounds. And with gas prices well over $3 in L.A. right now, the Kia Sedona thankfully runs on regular unleaded.
