2015 Kia Sedona: Fuel Economy Update For January - Road Trips Give a Slight Boost
by Brent Romans, Senior Automotive Editor on February 5, 2016
The East Coast had its big blizzard to start 2016. There was perhaps a bit of empathy coming from Edmunds' home area of Southern California, which lasted about a minute before devolving into winter-themed internet memes. But hey, our man Mike Schmidt did his best with our 2015 Kia Sedona. He went and looked at snow at least!
His road trip, plus normal commuting and a couple other short trips, gave us a total of about 1,500 miles in January and slightly above-average fuel economy.
For the month, we averaged 19.4 mpg. That's more than the lifetime average we posted last month (18.1 mpg), and we're now at 18.2 mpg lifetime. Considering that the EPA's combined estimate is 19 mpg, I'd say our Sedona is doing pretty well so far.
Worst Fill MPG: 11.7
Best Fill MPG: 27.1
Average Lifetime MPG: 18.2
EPA MPG Rating: 19 Combined (17 City/22 Highway)
Best Range: 395.3 miles
Current Odometer: 9,926 miles
