2007 Mini Cooper S: Fuel Economy Update

April 29, 2008

It's that time again. On the eve of our four-car fuel-sipper comparison test, I thought I would calculate the lifetime fuel economy of another diminutive fuel sipper -- albeit one that's fun to drive. Since our last update, we've actually improved our Mini Cooper's fuel economy by 0.6 mpg! How about that!

Average MPG: 26.24
EPA Combined MPG: 29 (d'oh!)

Best Tank: 33.70 mpg
Worst Tank: 16.57 mpg

There was a fill-up that reported 40 mpg, however, the entry's penmanship was questionable and it just seemed too good to be true. So it's certainly possible that Brian Moody went on a 123-mile downhill road trip with a stiff tail wind, but I've thrown it out just in case and used the second-best tank...
