2015 Kia Sedona: Fuel Economy Update for April — Ticks Slightly Upward

by Cameron Rogers, Associate Editor on May 6, 2016

2015 Kia Sedona

April proved to be one of the busiest months for our 2015 Kia Sedona so far. We added 2,389 miles to its odometer last month, just a few shy of the 2,523-mile record set in September. Even though we went on a couple long-distance road trips in April, the Sedona's lifetime average barely moved.

Scott's journey to Sedona certainly helped our minivan's overall fuel economy. So did a visit to Phoenix, Arizona, that Kurt took at the end of the month. The averages achieved during these highway trips were brought down by the city driving that occurred between the two. The Sedona's fuel economy for the month ended at 18.6 mpg, which nudged overall fuel economy from 18.0 mpg to 18.1 mpg.

I removed the previous "Worst Fill" of 11.7 mpg, as that was based on only 57.4 miles of driving.

Worst Fill MPG: 12.2 mpg
Best Fill MPG: 27.1 mpg
Average Lifetime MPG: 18.1 mpg
EPA MPG Rating: 19 Combined (17 City/22 Highway)
Best Range: 395.3 miles
Current Odometer: 15,502 miles
