2015 Kia Sedona: Fuel Economy Update For February - Meets EPA Target With City-Heavy Miles

by Mike Magrath, Features Editor on March 10, 2016

2015 Kia Sedona

Our 2015 Kia Sedona didn't get out much in February. Or if it did, it only made short trips. Did this have any impact on our overall fuel economy?

Not really.

Ed's plywood run didn't move the needle, nor did Brent's time with the van. Even my all-city week with the thing didn't do too much. Sure, I added two 15-mpg tanks during that time, but considering where I was driving (a hilly section of L.A.), the traffic (terrible) and my driving style (I live my life a quarter-mile at a time), it's actually not too bad.

Overall in February we managed 17 mpg, which is right in line with the EPA's city rating. Our lifetime average is now down to 18.1 mpg.

Worst Fill MPG: 11.7 
Best Fill MPG: 27.1
Average Lifetime MPG: 18.1
EPA MPG Rating: 19 Combined (17 City/22 Highway)  
Best Range: 395.3 miles  
Current Odometer: 11,594 miles
