2014 Mini Cooper: Fuel Economy Update for February
March 9, 2015
Our 2014 Mini Cooper isn't hitting the MPG estimates set by the EPA. This is not surprising as tiny turbocharged motors tend to nail the test and then struggle when faced with things like 70 mph freeway speeds and hills.
February's a short month, but thanks to Brent living in the middle of nowhere and my trip to Vegas, we managed to throw 1,800+ miles on the Mini this month. I've included the first two days of March because that was the end of my road trip and I want credit for our new highest-ever calculated mpg of...
...34.5 mpg. That bests the old record by .1. Huzzah!
Other than that, average lifetime mpg is up by less than 1 mpg and best range didn't change at all.
Worst Fill MPG: 18.2
Best Fill MPG: 34.5
Average Lifetime MPG: 27.0
EPA MPG Rating (revised): 32 Combined (28 City/39 Highway)
Best Range: 316.2 miles
Current Odometer: 9,756 miles
