2014 Mini Cooper: Fuel Economy Update for October
November 7, 2014
October has come and gone, and with it our 2014 Mini Cooper has covered a little more than 1,000 miles. We're still coming to grips with our Mini, which is a nice way to say we're still nailing the throttle at every opportunity to hear this rorty little three-cylinder do its business. Well ok, maybe that's just me.
You know the drill.
Using the revised fuel economy figures, the ones mandated by the EPA, and covered by Dan here, we're still quite behind where we should be. While our worst fill got worser, and our best fill got bester, our average stayed just about the same. Fun cars always suffer in the city, but a couple of honest highway trips should determine if that 39 MPG number is attainable.
Worst Fill MPG: 18.2
Best Fill MPG: 33.6
Average Lifetime MPG: 24.7
EPA MPG Rating (revised): 32 Combined (28 City/39 Highway)
Best Range: 236 miles
Current Odometer: 3,905 miles
